Sheer fabrics have become firm favourites in the last couple of years. We’ve all begun to see the potential of a fabric that can suggest a shape or colour but allows a body shape or a garment underneath to show through. It’s a truly complementary fabric and once which can be used in so many ways. We’ve simply draped our floating ivory chiffon fabric as a long scarf over our Flowing cafe-au-lait crepe fabric and this of course is the simplest of all things to do. A quick roll hem, a light press, and you’re away.
This delicately-printed floating ivory chiffon fabric is a straightforward polyester fabric. However that’s no bad thing. Breatheability isn’t a an issue with sheer fabrics – and the composition helps with the robustness of such a gentle, finely-woven fabric. We’ve called this an ivory chiffon fabric as its particular shade of ‘neutral’ is a clean, fresh off-white – rather than a yellow-cream colour.
This ivory chiffon fabric is very definitely a sheer fabric; it’s finely woven with a soft, smooth handle. You could use it simply as an evening throw or scarf – or make a simple French-seamed overshirt. You could of course make a beautiful blouse or top from it – but you’d need to ensure you had a proper undergarment such as a camisole. It has a lovely drape as we hope you can see from our images.
Our wafting, floating ivory chiffon fabric is 145cm wide – there’s a sensuous air of mystery in every metre.
