Black and white polka dots in a beautiful quality Japanese double gauze cotton. This unique weave is actually two layers of fine light cotton woven together and the effect is airy yet opaque and stable, a popular clothing fabric in Japan, as it is breathable and very comfortable -- and, a pleasure to sew with and to wear. Supple, soft airy cotton shirting weight is great for a blouse, dress, shirt or top and would be perfect for children's clothes. I used this weight combined with a Japanese linen for a duvet cover. Makes lovely accessories, small bags, pot holders, table linens etc too.
Winken, Blinken and Nod all mate well together.
Gwen Spencer used V9193 pairing these 3 fabrics + a dark floral knit as a binding. She says she would wear the pieces separately 'on the street' but wear them together as pajamas!
Pre-treat by wash/dry gentle, softens and gets more loft when put in the washer/dryer. Test a swatch to be sure. After sewing, I recommend wash gentle and air dry.
