Wedding Fabrics: Time to Party!
Everyone loves attending a wedding but the real fun comes afterwards at the party! The usually formal gowns worn by brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests aren't really designed for partying, getting in the way of dancing, eating, drinking and general merriment. That's why the after-party dress is so important.
One of the best options for creating these crucial garments is Contessa Duchess Satin, which is one of our bestselling materials here at Bridal Fabrics. Here is the lowdown on this gorgeous, versatile fabric: get ready to party!
Dyed and woven in Japan, Contessa Matt Duchess Satin measures 58 inches in width and weighs 288g/sqm. A unique weaving technique, using twisted yarns, results in an extremely strong and dense fabric that holds its shape during wear, making Contessa one of the most versatile fabrics we carry, suitable for making after-party dresses, corsets, waistcoats and more.
With its non-snag performance, regal appearance, firm handle and choice of 20 colors, Contessa Satin is the perfect material for creating after-party gowns. The palette of colors includes pink, purple, jade, claret, antique rose, cream, white and ivory: the gowns in these images use Contessa in ivory, burgundy and sky blue respectively.
We try to ensure that these colors are as accurately represented as they can possibly be but, as every computer, tablet and mobile screen is different, it is recommended that you order a free sample swatch of your chosen color before committing to purchase. If you're not sure which color you want, why not order our handy shade card?
