It was so much fun to see this fabric take life, and I love the drape of the double gauze. So fun, especially if you have a girl who loves to twirl.
In hindsight there are a lot of things I'd do differently with this dress, and with the double gauze in general. I think in the future I'll really put more thought into the pattern I'm using to make sure the double gauze would be the best choice. I really wanted to use it on this dress, as Apple and I both love this style, but since the halter top requires lining I wouldn't do it this way again. I lined it with a coordinating Heather Ross polka dot, which really shows through the top and takes a little bit away from the beautiful outer fabric. I'd probably suggest if you choose a project that has to be lined to line it with a solid color double gauze, which I found at Superbuzzy. It's expensive, but I think the results would probably be worth it.
I've also heard a lot about the "stretchiness" of this fabric. It does have quite a bit more give than a quilting weight cotton, and even though I prewashed the fabric, I still encountered some problems, particularly in parts of the dress that required fabric cut on the bias. I normally never have any problems doing a simple hem, or side seams of a skirt, but I really had to almost fight to keep my fabrics aligned when sewing the skirt of this dress together, because of the bias cut. Something else to keep in mind when choosing a pattern.
