Straight Grain's newest pattern Nova is made for the softest fabrics. I already saw some amazing examples in double gauze, so I ordered one on Etsy all the way from Japan.
Unfortunately it got lost in the mail, but now I see the result in the lovely poppy colored double gauze, I'm kinda glad it did. I bought this excellent quality double gauze from Julija shop and the color is so beautiful <3
I choose the Nova dress with cap sleeves, zig zag pleats and no zipper. The pleats aside, Nova is a very quick sew, but just not as quick as An made us believe in her funny video!
The pleats worried me, I must admit. I'm not the most patient seamstress and not a fan of handstitching at all. Happy to find out that the zig zag pleats were fairly easy to make with An's fine explanation.
We went to take pictures in Flanders fields to find some poppies, which worked out beautifully, until she preferred to play hide and seek between the grain :-)
