CHIFFON is a lightweight woven fabric with a mesh like weave that gives it a transparent appearance. It is primarily made from cotton, silk or synthetic fibers like rayon, polyester and nylon. Chiffon can be used for dresses, scarves and blouses!
100% RAYON is a lightweight woven fabric with a smooth surface. It is soft to the touch and very drapey. Rayon is a man-made fiber but is comprised of natural fibers. Thus making rayon the perfect fabric for warm weather clothing!

GEORGETTE is a sheer, lightweight, dull-finished crepe fabric. It is similar to chiffon but feels as if it has an extra layer on it. Originally made from silk.
