Bridal Fabrics - Chiffon Fabric for Brides and Bridesmaids

There are a number of dress designs and styles that you can choose from when it comes to your buying your wedding gown or bridesmaid dresses as well as a number of Bridal Fabrics to pick from. Recently we have seen a trend towards lace fabrics, still influenced from the wedding dress of Kate Middleton and recently seen on brides such as Nicky Hilton and Geri Halliwell however if you are looking for a classic and elegant look without lace, chiffon and sheer fabrics are great Bridal Fabrics to choose.

Chiffon fabric is lightweight, woven fabric that is perfect for dresses that need Bridal Fabrics that will drape. Chiffon can be used to add volume to a dress and can be used as an overlay with lightweight satins underneath to create a elegant and ethereal look to your wedding gown. As it is lightweight, chiffon is often the fabric of choice for destination wedding gowns and bridesmaids as they will not be too heavy in a hotter climate and are also light to pack in a suitcase. When gathered, chiffon will create a beautiful drape and is perfect if you are looking for a bridal fabric that will create a feminine look. It is particularly popular for grecian style dresses for bridesmaids and is also particularly stunning on empire line dresses with a diamante accent around the waist line.

Here at Calico Laine, we stock a large range of chiffons in various widths. Traditionally chiffon is manufactured in a 45" width however we stock 54" and 60" wide chiffon Bridal Fabrics which can be particularly useful if you are creating a full length dress. Our cationic chiffon range is particularly popular as many of these come in a two tone effect which can really make dresses stand out and give a bit more depth to a dress rather than having a flat colour. At only £3.99 per metre, these fabrics are great value for money and are ideal for making bridesmaid dresses.
