Hello fellow fabric lovers!
I’m hoping someone will be kind enough to help me figure out the type of fabric(s) I’m looking for.
There is a very inexpensive cotton called “scrim” that is commonly used as a sheer lining for curtains. I’d like to find linen and/or cotton fabrics of a somewhat tighter weave than scrim, but with similar lightweight sheerness, soft hand and almost limp drape.
I’ve been sewing all my life, but could not tell you a name for such fabrics. Lawn? Batiste? Voile? Gauze? Can linen be found in a gauze that is not crinkled?
If I knew the right terms for what I was looking for I could search online, so any help would be appreciated tremendously!
