Fabrics in Focus

Silk Georgette and Crinkle Silk Chiffon

Silk fabrics are always lovely to work with – they look great and fall beautifully.

Sheer silks are lightweight and great to drape intricate patterns with.
Two of Karen’s favourite fabrics at the moment are Silk Georgette and Crinkle Silk Chiffon.

Silk Georgette is a sheer smooth matte silk.

A dream to drape with, it is our fabric of choice for gowns that are intricately ruched on the bodice, like our ‘Kimberley’ gown. The soft fall of the fabric creates a floaty look that is so sweet and pretty.

Sheer silks, like Silk Georgette, work beautifully with a heavier fabric like Delustred satin.
As shown on our ‘Theresa’ gown, the contrast in the two fabrics creates a stunning juxtaposition that is feminine and sophisticated.

Another one of our favourite sheer silks is Crinkle Silk Chiffon.
A soft matte silk with a subtle crinkle effect throughout, it creates gorgeous texture.

The fabric can be manipulated in wonderful ways, and bias strips cut with a raw edge, add wonderful depth and feel to a bodice like our ‘Natalie’ gown.

The crinkle effect offers a fabulous look and feel that works wonderfully either plain, or with a dazzling diamante belt like our ‘Natalie belt’.
