Georgette fabric is distinctive for its crinkly crepe-like texture, which feels slightly rough and dull, but gives the fabric a bouncy, flowing look. The overall appearance is slightly sheer, since the threads are very thin. The crepe-like texture of georgette fabric makes it very springy, so that the fabric almost appears to move on its own. It also drapes very well, making it a popular choice for women's clothing. Since georgette fabric is thin, it is also lightweight, and can be used as a layer in a largered garment without being heavy or bulky. Layers of georgette fabric may be used for a fanciful effect, especially in gowns and special occasion wear. Bridal gowns, evening dresses, and other formal wear are often made with georgette fabric because of these beautiful qualities. At Minerva Crafts we stock a lovely range of plain georgette fabrics with an ever changing range of georgette prints throughout the year.
