Chiffon is a translucent, diaphanous fabric that was first made in France. It is woven in a unique manner: S-shaped yarns are woven into Z-shaped yarns, creating a somewhat puckered fabric that has a beautiful textured appearance, making it ideal for creating a wide range of bridal garments. This edition of the Bridal Fabrics blog showcases a delightful selection of chiffon fabrics online.
Arden is a glamorous ivory lace with an unusual chiffon base and matching borders featuring differently-sized scallop details. A glorious pattern of flowers and leaves, rendered in exquisite guipure embroidery, decorates the background of this wonderful wedding dress lace. The tips of the flower-buds are not directly attached to the bridal lace, giving the fabric an amazing three-dimensional effect.
Whirl comprises a stunning chiffon fabric that has been cut on the bias before being over-locked on one side and hemmed on the other; this technique results in a gracefully-curved trim that can be easily used to create an amazing layered effect. Whirl is also available as an organza fabric.
