I made very casual summer pants from this fabric and love it! The texture is very interesting, but not "untidy" looking and the fabric drape seems almost elegant to me. The black is a deep, saturated color, which did not budge during the first wash.
Flax fibers being pretty tough, this material does give sewing needles a bit of a hard time. I had to use a very sharp and slightly thinner machine needle.
The pants wear fantastic!

Really nice weight for men's trousers, and very easy to work with. Welt pockets are super easy on this fabric. Getting the sleeves to ease in for jackets is a bit more challenging, since the linen is so firmly woven and thick that the usual methods of easing in the sleeve cap require more fussing than with a fabric that shrinks or has room in the fibers to be shoved a little closer.
