Chiffon is a lightweight, sheer, and flowing fabric known for its transparency and shimmer. Made from cotton, silk, or synthetic fibers, chiffon’s most notable feature is its gossamer weave, which provides a soft, elegant drape. This fabric is a staple in evening wear and bridal fashion, favored for its airy appearance and graceful movement. Chiffon is also used in scarves, blouses, and lingerie. Due to its delicate nature, chiffon can be challenging to work with and often requires a lining or backing when used in garments.
