Bright Violet Silk Chiffon Fabric is a sheer, lightweight fabric most often used in evening-wear, lingerie and bridal/wedding. The name "chiffon" derives from the French word for "rag" or "cloth". Because of its beautiful and soft drape, our silk chiffon fabric is ideal for bridal, evening dresses, jackets, blazers, pants, skirts, blouses, and lingerie. This is also a perfect warm-weather fabric, as the silk fibers have a natural absorbency. Our unique and distinctive fabric is available in a wide selection of colors. The fabric is sold by the Yard, and measures 44 inches in width.
