Have you sewn with their double gauze? Or any double gauze (they all have the same hand)?
The pattern was a bit too roomy and the neckline kept falling off my shoulders. I have since adjusted the pattern and added elastic in the neck casing to keep it together.
It took me a while to figure out how to wear it. I had planned to wear it over jeans, as above. However, the double gauze fabric sticks to other fabrics rather than slipping over them. Not great for a layered look or for wearing an undershirt with.
The solution to this problem is to make a simple slip in a silky or slinky fabric. I find a viscose jersey perfect and have made many of them, with and without sleeves. This also helps with the transparency of the double gauze.
Now that I have learned this I am planning to add a few more double gauze tops to my wardrobe.
I’ve been working on fitting this tunic top and think it would be perfect in a double gauze fabric. I can change the neckline, the length, the yoke or the sleeves without much trouble. And I think I can really have some fun with the pattern placement (better buy a little extra for this).
I’ll find a few good co-ordinating and contrasting viscose jersey fabrics and make some slips that can peak out below the hem of the tunic. See how I’ve styled it in the header mood board? Like that please.
Speaking of the header mood board… I’m in love with this scarf from Toast. At £170 it’s not really in my budget, but wow!
Sewing With A Plan
I’m currently playing around with spring colour palettes. I am going to Sew With A Plan for the Spring and be really thoughtful in selecting which fabrics I will purchase. More on that in my next post.
