I cannot tell you how much I love this fabric. The colour is just amazing, so vibrant and the perfect shade of teal but that's only part of it. I have sewn a fair bit of double gauze recently from multiple manufacturers and I have to say that the Cloud 9 double gauze is the nicest of them all. If feels amazing to touch as it has such a soft handle. I am totally in love. So much so I ordered this print as soon as the teal one arrived and now I have worn it I think I might just have to order the remaining two colour ways too. It is honestly that nice.
You might notice that the front of the neckline is sitting a little strange on me. I made my own facings to use with the Emery bodice rather than the lining the pattern calls for. I hadn't bothered interfacing them before as the quilting cotton I use really doesn't need it but the double gauze was sticking to itself causing the facing to wrinkle and generally annoy me so I have added a bit of interfacing as an afterthought and it's not quite right. As a result of this I have interfaced the last couple double gauze dresses I have made before construction and it has worked a treat. Not sure what I can do about this one now though. It doesn't look that bad IRL but does sit a little proud around the centre of the neckline now. Any ideas?
