IL020 Handkerchief Silver Lilac Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Light (3.7 oz/yd2), Width 58"
Fresh outdoor light breezes through Lilla Cabot Perry's dappled gardens and shadowy rooms, forming powdery puffs of pale blue, lilac and green. Sheaths of icy lavender like that of SILVER LILAC Linen streak through them and cross clothing, trees, and rooftops, invoking the tart, biting freshness of the morning.
A leader in 19th
century Impressionism, Perry is credited with bringing radical French
ideas to her native United States and her erstwhile home in Japan,
carrying a passion for color, light, and the alchemy of paint across the
At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".
The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Beautiful color but much softer than shown. More lavender with a grey tint. I love it! The texture is soft and flowy. Making a top with butterfly sleeves. It will be perfect.
IL020 Silver Lilac is a soft lilac hue with a lovely hand. It is lightweight w/o being sheer & is perfect for Savannah's heat & humidity. So easy to sew. Washed, dried & pressed per FS recommendations & made some of it up into Agustina boxy top w/a lower neckline. There was additional shrinkage on 2nd washing & now the fit is much better although I was told it may shrink a bit more when washed again. I've gotten lots of compliments & people notice the high quality of FS 100% linen.
Simply Divine. I am looking forward to wrapping myself in this beautiful linen. So glad I finally got it.
I recently ordered this yummy color and several others in two different orders. This is such a lovely color! I was not expecting it to be as pretty as it is! This is my first time ordering linen. I see a LOT of new garments being made in these wonderful linens! I purchased a linen tunic a few years ago that I absolutely love wearing in the Texas heat! I have created a pattern from it too! I can hardly wait to recreate it in many colors! Thank you F-S for these beautiful linens!
Beautiful Lavender Linen is so soft. I held it and fondled it because I could hardly believe how wonderful it feels. the Lavender is a great color for the quilt I am gathering fabrics for. Thank You. Linda A.
Just in time before the summer is over I made my new absolutely favorite summer dress. I used IL020 CORAL Softened / IL019 IRIS Softened / IL020 SILVER LILAC Softened. The striped fabric is deadstock and from my stash. It's 100% cotton and not from fabrics-store – but it fit so perfectly with the other colors so I used it.
Nowadays my heart beats for lilac. Sweater for my son? Lilac. Tulips? Lilac. Those 90s/00s mum hair clips my son calls BeißBeiß (engl. BiteBite) because they look like teeth? Lilac. I just love it – everything looks better in lilac! It's the perfect balance between cold blue and warm red in a light and soft version. And you know what's cold and warm aswell? Right – SPRING! The only thing I would change next time – I used one of the lightweight fabrics (in SILVER LILAC) but would recommend one of the Midweights (for example Iris) more, as my dress is a bit transparent. I don't really have a problem with that, but not everyone is comfortable with wearing a see-through dress.
