Cotton batiste fabric is a fine semi-transparent type of cloth with a soft face and a slight crispness. With weight ranging from 50 to 100 g/m 2, it is great for various summer clothing. Blouses, dresses, skirts, nightgowns and underlining for wedding gowns made of batiste are getting increasingly popular in 2017/2018 fashion seasons.
It is thin and quite light, but not as much as sheer fabrics. This type of cotton weave is known for its durability. It is a popular choice for a summer dress also due to great hygroscopic, hypoallergic and ventilation properties of cotton batiste.
