Chiffon is most commonly used in evening wear, especially as an overlay, for giving an elegant and floating appearance to the gown. It is also a popular fabric used in blouses, ribbons, scarves and lingerie. Like other crêpe fabrics, chiffon can be difficult to work with because of its light and slippery texture. Due to this delicate nature, chiffon must be hand washed very gently
Bi-stretch is a medium weight woven polyester fabric, it has a "give" in the fabric and not a true stretch! it is a firm favourite with the home sewer, dress maker and wedding and venue event organisers.
