This is my second version of the Lottie dress from Christine Haynes. Version one is in ikat and this one is double, double gauze- one for the top half and another for the bottom. I used the first of the Lottie hack tutorials to colourblock the pattern. Everything I said in my first post for the ikat version stands for this one too. The tutorial is really easy to follow with lots of helpful pics.

I retraced the dress front and back for this one and only added a 5/8″ forward shoulder adjustment this time but kept the length the same as the first one I made.

Both the double gauzes I used for this are from Nani Iro. The top one is a gorgeous washed-out inky blue with metallic silver spots and very soft.

This one was 42″ wide and it took a little over 50″ to cut the top half of the dress and sleeve pieces out.

The bottom fabric is slightly heavier and stiffer but equally beautiful. I ended up cutting the skirt pieces on the cross-grain because I preferred the pattern direction (forgot to take a pic of that)

I love how huge the pockets are! This would work equally well with side seam pockets too I think.

The slightly stiffer skirt fabric makes the skirt stand out a little bit which I really like. There is something I love about the slightly rumpled look of this fabric. This is a very casual and very comfortable Lottie and who doesn’t love to wear double gauze?
