Embrace® double gauze is the perfect substrate for lightweight breezy dresses. Meg at BurdaStyle sewed this pretty tiered dress and wrote a customized sewing tutorial all about her creative process.BurdaStyle Tiered Embrace double gauze dress sewing tutorial

Meg, the online editor at, wanted to experiment with our Embrace® double gauze. She chose two colors from our Embrace cotton solids, Solid Embrace Teal and Solid Embrace Opal.
