What is Georgette Fabric?
Georgette fabric is a fine woven crepe material. It is characteristically lightweight. It is a sheer textile, so the majority of garments made from georgette are lined,It has a fantastic drape, and is a fabric which fays easily. Custom printed georgette material doesn't easily crease (poly georgette barely creases at all) and is perfect for bridal wear, as well as dressmaking and home decor such as fine curtains. Georgette gets it's name from Madame Georgette de la Plante, who was a French milliner (someone who makes and/or sells women's hats) and dressmaker. Traditionally it is made from silk, however modern materials can also be used to make georgette fabric, which gives it other properties and characteristics. We offer a 100% silk, and a poly printed georgette fabric, custom made right here in our studio with your personalised design.
Silk georgette cannot be put in the washing machine, but can be dry cleaned or hand washed in cold water with silk detergent. With Silk Georgette fabric you should expect a fabric shrinkage of approximately 6% on the weft, and 10% on the warp.Please note:
Due to the print process large areas of solid colour may show minor blemishes or discolouration. This is to be expected and we would advise avoiding large solid blocks of colour if possible.
Finishing your Custom Printed Georgette Material
Once your printed georgette material has your beautiful design in full colour it can be sent straight out to you. We call this "As it comes" and you'll have a white edged border around your fabric. You can, if you prefer, choose to have your fabric either "Cut on the Line" so all the white edges are removed or as it is a fraying material, you may prefer to have it hemmed. You'll be given the option of a black or white thread, and either an overlock hem, which stitches over the edges of your fabric, or a two fold hem with a straight stitch. If you choose to have your custom printed georgette material hemmed, then please allow 6-8mm on each of the sides of your fabric (12-16 mm in total) for hemming when you give us your bespoke measurements.
