I'm in the process of choosing the perfect chiffon fabric for my upcoming project, but I'm feeling a bit confused as to which one to choose. I'm not very familiar with chiffon and its various types, so I thought it would be best to ask for some guidance from those who have more experience.
My project is a dress for a formal event, so I want the chiffon to be elegant, flowy and luxurious. I've been looking at two types of chiffon - silk chiffon and polyester chiffon. From what I understand, silk chiffon is more expensive but has a more luxurious feel and drapes beautifully, while polyester chiffon is more affordable but may not have the same quality and feel as silk.
Considering my requirements for the dress, which chiffon fabric would be the best choice - silk or polyester? I would really appreciate any recommendations or insights from those who have worked with both types before. Thank you in advance!
