Nani Iro Tunics Two Ways

Part of my frantic preparation for Quilt Market was to sew as many clothes as possible — I made three shirts, a skirt, and almost a whole coat. Sure, I already have a bunch of home-sewn clothes, but they weren't fresh. I needed something new to make me feel good. So, I cut into my coveted Nani Iro double gauze fabrics and used my trusty Simplicity 5197 (Ack! It doesn't show up at Simplicity. It might be out of print.) pattern.

Photos and poses are inspired by my sister and her fashion-y flickr friends.

They are incredible and the fact that you are model and maker just adds something extra to the fashiony photos!

Your tunics look great. I too have the same fabric with the black background and am ready to dive into it. Before I do I was wondering if you prepared your fabric by washing it beforehand? And did you happen to use any specific type of interface for the double gauze. Thanks for any insight you might pass along.
