Sewing linen clothes yourself is quite simple. It is only important to remember the likely shrinkage of up to 15% and sharpen the scissors in time - due to the high density of the fabric, the sharp blades quickly blunt and begin to spoil the material.
ALUMINUM FOIL TO SHARPEN ROTARY CUTTERS AND SCISSORS
While you are in the kitchen, grab a roll of aluminum foil to sharpen your cutting tools! If your rotary cutter’s blade is dull, instead of changing it right away, try this technique: take a long sheet of foil and fold it several times on itself, until you have at least 8 layers. Place the foil on your cutting mat and roll your rotary cutter on it, several dozen times. Try it every so often on a scrap of fabric: you should notice a clear improvement! This works just as well with fabric scissors.
