More gauze weaving

I did some more sampling of different gauze threadings, and now I'm trying a wider piece of fabric that I'd like to make into a lacy blouse.

This really lacy bit is the yoke part of the blouse that goes over the shoulders (the lower part is more modest).  This part was slower to weave because some of the sheds don't always open cleanly.  I haven't quite figured out yet why it works when it does.  It seems to be a combination of where the fell line is relative to the heddles, plus the height of the tensioning-jumpers in back of the castle.

What do you think?  I think this weave is pretty cool!
