I found 6 yards plus of good quality bottom weight linen in my stash.

I can see making a skirt and pair of pants but I'm afraid they'll look dumpy.

What would you make and what pattern would you use? (extra points if it's a TNT pattern for you).

I can sew but I'm fashion challenged!!

eta: I'm looking at Style Arc pants patterns right now. Wish I knew which ones would work in linen!

Thanks! I didn't even consider a casual pant. It looks like a great pattern.

A jumpsuit in white linen would be great for summer...pair it with a really cool belt. A romper would also be cute. I made a pair of drawstring linen pants a couple summers ago...really nice in hot weather if you can put up with the wrinkles. A maxi skirt in white linen is another idea...again with a cool belt.
Let us know what you decide!

I have a Burda pattern similar to what SewConfused posted. A casual white linen pant would be perfect.

I'm just wondering about lining them. Any thoughts? I'm pretty sure there will be some slight see through.

Patty those are cute ideas.

Would the maxi skirt be a simple A line? The fabric doesn't have a lot of drape (that could change though - I'm washing and drying a sample now to see what happens).

I have white linen set aside for a top sheet and pillow cases.

Clothing.....
Loose trousers.
Flared slip dress.
Washed over and over and made into movie star pajamas. :)
Button front camisole with wide shoulder straps.
Koko Beall sleeveless summer dress.
Loose bell sort of A line skirt that is inverted in at the bottom.
(I'm thinking Marci Tilton oop on the skirt but am away from my patterns right now.)
Simple sleeveless top, boxy shape with extended shoulder and off center front closure.

I just made a white linen shirt using a TNT M6613 for my DH. It turned out great!
