Where do you buy linen?

    I would like to make some pants and the Sunday brunch jacket in linen, (since I’ve seen some irresistible ones on the flickr page). I never made anything with linen for myself, so this is new territory for me. Would anyone like to recommend a store or online source that is good for children — meaning soft, washable, sturdy? I will be sticking to natural/neutral tones, or maybe a subtle print.

    I love sewing baby clothes with linen! I seems like such a sophisticated fabric for children’s clothes! I have collected most of mine from Joanns and Fabric.com, but I think you can find it at many other places. I know Sewmamasew.com has a great selection as well. Good luck, I can’t wait to see what you make!

    The best place I’ve found for linen online is http://www.duckcloth.com.au (Australian). It’s not cheap though, but they keep beautiful colours and it is good quality – lovely and soft. Yhe one I bought from fabric.com was quite stiff, even after washing.

    I like fabrics-store.com (http://www.fabrics-store.com/first.php?menu=h) for linen — great deep colors, lots of subtle neutrals, decent prices and many weights to choose from. My picky 4 year old says it’s soft too…

    I have bought linen from http://www.purlsoho.com/purl and have been very pleased.

    There is a linen/cotton blend of prints, suitable for children’s clothing by Kokka of Japan. They sell them at purlsoho (NYC store mentioned above) and also at http://www.someartfabric.com (Atlanta small business). I LOVE working with this fabric.
