Chiffon and Georgette
Chiffon and georgette are similar lightweight sheer fabrics, available in both silk and polyester. Chiffon fabric is 'floatier' and often slightly lighter and more transparent. Chiffon materials range from matt to medium sheen. Georgette, named after Parisian designer Georgette de la Plante, is drapier and often a little heavier, with a matt crepe texture, so no sheen. They are popular dress fabrics, especially for summer wedding dresses, and bridesmaids, elegant evening wear, blouses, and other dressmaking. Chiffon is also used for scarves, and in lingerie, georgette for the lightest-weight trousers and suits. Two-tone or 'shot' colours have warp threads in one colour, and weft threads in another.
