Silk organza is very light-weight and sheer, but a bit stiff, and can be gathered for bouffant uses, used alone or over other fabrics for fitted to loosely fitted blouses, dresses and evening wear. It is also useful for facings, interfacings or lining. Silk organza can be used as an underlining to add crispness to parts of a garment. It sews easily, doesn't show pin holes. It is usually reserved for underlining another silk, flower girl dresses, christening dresses, some bedding accessories and interfacings for sheers or semi-sheers or where an extremely light stiffening is required.
Organza is washable, but wash it before cutting out. Click on the fabric care buttons to the left for more information on washing silks.
