I really love the look/feel of those floaty gathered skirts made out of a super soft, kind of thin cotton, usually with a second layer of plain cotton of the same type - like really thin muslin. Does anyone know - is that what cotton voile is?!
Thank you!

sounds like cotton voile to me: usually a finely woven, sheer cotton. I'm kooky for voile prints.

Cotton voile is usually printed semi sheer fabric, at least that's what I've always seen. The plain cotton underneath is usually cotton batiste. Wonderful in the summer.

Cotton voile does come in solids and is readily available from heirloom sewing purveyors, such as Farmhouse Fabrics. Its sheer but IMO does not have that float of a chiffon. It can actually stick to itself. It is very pretty for Christening gowns.

So, do you think this cotton voile at Crybaby's would make a nice soft, old-fashioned gathered skirt?

Would you know an online source for cotton batiste?! I always see it as a suggested fabric in BWOF patterns...

Gorgeous Fabrics has cotton batistes and they are on sale until the end of Feb. I believe. Hope this helps.

Any sources for linen gauze? Alternately, what would be an acceptable substitute? I have the Sandra Betzina shirt pattern
( can't remember the number), which shows a picture on the envelope made from linen gauze.
