Silk has always been a highly prized cloth since it was first obtained thousands of years ago in China. Perfectly natural and breathable, it is considered the ‘queen of the fabrics’ and comes in a wide variety of textures. Silk is generally used in textiles and is one of the most popular choices both for evening dresses and casual wear – all because of its look, feel and hand. Silk fabrics are not only lightweight, but also resilient and strong. Lilac silk dresses are a sure way to be a hit at a prom or a cocktail party.
Silk chiffon is a plain woven fabric created from twisted crepe yarns. It is lightweight and extremely sheer and has a soft, slightly bumpy texture.

They are often used for dresses and blouses, as well as skirts and other spring/summer apparel.
Silk chiffon, as well as many other lightweight woven fabrics, is quite tricky to sew.
