A few tips for sewing Double Gauze

  • Double Gauze is easy to sew so it is suitable for any skill level from beginners to experienced
  • Zig Zag or Overlock the raw edges to avoid double gauze unravelling around the edges
  • If you are wanting maximum crinkle effect with your Double Gauge, wash the fabric prior to sewing.  Double Gauze has been pre-washed so there is minimum shrinkage expected
  • As Double Gauze is a loose weave it has a tendency to stretch when sewing.  Make sure you pin your sewing and use a light tension of your foot when sewing
  • Always use a new machine needle when sewing (a universal 70/10 needle is a good choice)
  • When sewing use a longer stitch length as fabric can pull and pucker when using shorter stitches
  • You can press the fabric prior to sewing as it will make sewing easier – when you wash your item it will re-crinkle
