Georgette • Georgette Fabric • Silk Georgette • Polyester Georgette • Georgette Dress
Georgette is a sheer lightweight fabric, often made of silk or polyester. It is slightly heavier and more opaque than chiffon. The twisted crepe fibers from which georgette fabric is made give it a springy quality that makes it seem to move on its own. While this quality makes georgette fabric somewhat more difficult to sew, the results are well worth the effort.
Not Just Georgette Fabric
Charmeuse fabric is just one of the fabrics we carry that are classic choices for blouses and dresses. Our site also offers chiffon, charmeuse , organza, crepe and peau de soie fabric. The common denominator among these fabrics is that, like charmeuse, they have a long history as generic silks but have been very successfully imitated in polyester. For reasons of both cost and ease of care, polyester has taken over from silk for both bridal gowns and prom dresses. However, designers still much prefer silk and where cost and practical concerns are not at issue, silk is still the fabric of choice.
