The name is in the fabric: CHIFFON DRESSES are made from ‘chiffon’ which is a light/thin piece of cloth made chiefly of silk. It can also be made from nylon, rayon, polyester or cotton. The word ‘chiffon’ is of French origin and it means ‘cloth’. The fabric is so delicate that weavers would have to devise a means like layering the two sides of the material with paper before work can be done on it- this prevents the fabric from wearing away.
WHAT A CHIFFON DRESS BRINGS ON BOARD
The chiffon fabric is used to make wedding dresses [most preferably with lace]; evening gowns and some other scintillating ways.
One profound statement these dresses make is that of elegance- glamour is the end-product a CHIFFON DRESS gives. Coupled with this, there is a romantic sensation added. So, with your chiffon dress on, your beauty has got a complement and your wedding and/or the evening/dinner party with your partner is made.
CARING FOR YOUR CHIFFON DRESSES
Just like you are going to handle an egg: you have got to handle your chiffon dress with great care. Here, are some tips:
- Firstly, with your chiffon on, before you take your seat, watch very carefully. Make sure there is no sharp or rough stuff around. Plus watch out for rough planes.
- Wash your CHIFFON DRESS separately. Wash gently with your hands [especially if it is made of silk and rayon]. It is advisable to soak the dress for about 15-20 minutes in water with mild detergent before washing. Do not leave in water for a very long time. It is best air dried.
