Madam Georgette de la Plante, back in the 20th century, introduced the elegance and softness of an excellent fabric widely popular now as ‘Georgette’.
Georgette is a lightweight sheer fabric, sometimes made of polyester or silk. It’s little heavier and smokier than chiffon. The twisted crepe fibers from which georgette is produced provides with a springy quality which makes it appear to move on its own. While this standard makes georgette something harder to sew the outcomes are well-worth the effort.
