When looking at the paintings and prints of contemporary artist Peter Doig, it is easy to link his work with the great expressionist painters of art history, from Henri Matisse to Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde, Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch. Yet Doig cannily adds his own contemporary twist, through electrifyingly bright, iridescent colors like Love Bird, along with snippets of narrative that relate to a series of popular media outlets, like film stills, magazine pages and newspaper articles. Thus, his work becomes a fusion of old and new, looking both backward and forwards in time.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.

As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

IL019 Is this a color close to chartreuse?

Yes this color would be considered a version of chartreuse.

Love Bird colorway

Although it is not the color I expected, it is still the same lovely quality of linen from I would not describe this color as "chartreuse" - it is more of an unmistakable NEON highlighter YELLOW. If you like your colors bright, this one's gonna blind you!

Love Bird is so lovely. It's not super yellow when you hold it next to butter yellows but it's also not totally neon green. It's like the color of a parrot that you can only find in a tropical rainforest. Technically, you could probably say it is chartreuse but I like my rainforest comparison more. What I do know even more is that this summer I have really gotten behind the bright bold color trend and my daughters and I have been very happy with that decision.

These V1688 trousers are Dopamine Sewing, served to me with no strings attached. They are tailored, but relaxed. The linen is saturated, but a neutral. I added more interest by using a decorative stitch in matching thread to the belt loops. Dopamine dressing is all about wearing clothes that make you feel good, right?! When I wear these, I feel like I stepped out of a magazine.

I can't continue until we chat about the color Love Bird. It is an insanely saturated it yellow? Is it green? Whatever color it leans towards, I knew I needed it. Its bold. Its bright. AND more importantly, it hits all the dopamine sensors in my brain [insert joyful alarm noises here]. Let's talk about the pattern itself. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this pattern is "heavily" inspired (aka- ripped off) from UK-based brand, Tove. I can't buy a $700+ dress right now, but could afford a $10 sale pattern...If you're reading know what choice I made.
