Here at Calico Laine, wedding season is truly upon us. Brides are currently in the process of deciding what to wear on their big day; along with their bridesmaids. Choosing Bridal Fabric can often become a daunting task. At Fabric-World, we are here to help with our extensive knowledge of Wedding Fabrics to make the choice easier.
In the past few years, we have noticed that chiffon Bridal Fabric has become a popular choice for brides. Chiffon fabric gives a dress a soft, flowing look. It is an ideal fabric if a bride wants a lightweight dress and is perfect for destination wedding gowns in hot countries.
If you are looking to create a full skirt, you can use chiffon in multiple layers. This will create volume without becoming heavy. As well as being used on its own, Chiffon can be sewn over the top of another fabric to soften the look of a structured fabric such as satin back crepe. Chiffon Bridal Fabric can also be utilised to create sleeves or a see-through neckline on a satin or crepe gown. This will give a number of different textures on the dress; creating an interesting aesthetic.
A fashionable style of bridesmaid dress is the long maxi dress. Chiffon Bridal Fabric is the perfect fabric for this. Here at Calico Laine, we stock cationic chiffon in over 30 colours. This means that whatever your colour theme, you have for your big day, you are sure to find a colour to suit. Many of the colours are two tone, mimicking the look of real silk. At £4.49 per metre and 140cm wide, this fabric is great value for money without compromising on quality.
