I bought this Nani Iro double gauze from etsy seller Miss Matatabi last year, mainly to try double gauze as I hadn't sewn with it before. Turns out it is lovely to sew with. It presses well and sort of sticks to itself a bit so not much pinning is necessary. The fabric is quite narrow (108cm or 42 inches wide) so it limited what I could make with the 2 metres I bought. I used Simplicity 2995 and extended the shoulders for a cap sleeve effect.
I used purchased bias binding for the neckline and just overlocked, turned and topstitched the sleeve and bottom hems. Lazy!
I didn't have enough fabric to match the pattern on the back pieces, but who am I kidding I wouldn't have done it anyway, because unmatched doesn't bother me one bit. Unless it's plaid. How many plaid frocks have I made? None. Told you, I'm lazy!
This shift style is a little bit of a departure for me. I'm used to more waist shaping, but I think I'll wear it because I do like it. I pieced a tie belt from the scraps to act as wearing insurance, in case the shift silhouette doesn't appeal to me after all.
