Japanese double gauze soft denim. The plain weave version of ‘Soni’. Will become lighter and more distressed after each wash. 100% cotton. 136cm wide.
Double gauze is a top layer of cotton with an invisibly stitched layer of cotton gauze underneath. It is very breathable and much like wool it is cool in the summer but also warming in the cooler months. This fabric is beautiful for dressmaking and feels very substantial without feeling too thick making it a good choice for many of our patterns. We made a sleeveless Trapeze out of Soni, which although herringbone, is the same weight and finish as Mikiko.
We have washed a piece, please look in the gallery.
Mikiko is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: The Haremere coat.
