When all four fabrics arrived on my doorstep, this was the one I was most excited about. I had my eyes on it from the very beginning and no questions asked, it was going to become a shirt. I've never seen anything like it but I had my suspicions that the subtle blue and pink stripes would fit perfectly into my existing wardrobe.
The website describes this fabric as a poplin, but with my English way of sewing would better describe this as a double gauze. Both the "right side" and "wrong side" are equally beautiful - and when you cut into it, you can see that it's two layers of fabric attached together with tiny stitches at regular intervals.
Being a natural fabric, it washed and pressed beautifully. If I had planned more carefully, I would have measured the width before and after pre-washing to record if it had shrunk at all. I've not previously worked with double gauze, but my experience tells me that a looser weave of fabric has potential to shrink slightly in the washing machine. I didn't notice any behavioural change once the fabric had dried - the same lightweight, drapes qualities were still there.
The only problem I had was deciding what exactly to make with it.
