I'm currently in the process of making a dance costume for a competition, as well as a skating dress for my daughter. I'm considering using chiffon for both of these projects, but I'm unsure if it would be a suitable fabric choice.
I've heard that chiffon can be quite light and flowy, which might be ideal for dance, but I'm not sure how it would hold up to the movement and stretching involved in skating. Additionally, I want to make sure the costumes look professional and polished, and I'm worried that chiffon might not have the right texture or weight for that.
Has anyone here used chiffon for dance or skating costumes before? How did it turn out, and would you recommend it? If not, do you have any suggestions for other fabrics that would work well for these types of costumes?
Thank you in advance for your help!
