Let's talk about Chiffon....

Friends,

I think this word feels elegant, sophisticated and ohhhh so soft on the lips. The French know all about language, and it amazes me how so many French words have a way of feeling like the object as spoken! 

chif·fon
SHiˈfän/Submit
noun
a light, sheer fabric typically made of silk or nylon.
"a chiffon blouse"
(of a cake or dessert) made with beaten egg whites to give a light consistency.
modifier noun: chiffon
"chiffon cake"

Ver'e'ne Chiffon lined Skirts are amazingly feminine!

Chiffon (French pronunciation: ​[ʃi.fɔ̃]; English pronunciation /ʃɪˈfɒn/, shiff-on, from the French word for a cloth or rag) is a lightweight, balanced plain-woven sheer fabric woven of alternate S- and Z-twist crepe (high-twist) yarns.[1] The twist in the crepe yarns puckers the fabric slightly in both directions after weaving, giving it some stretch and a slightly rough feel.

Many Ver'e'ne cascading vests, peasant blouses, and dresses are coming out this season for the most colorful, joyous, dressing!!

Early chiffon was made purely from silk. In 1938, however, a nylon version of chiffon was invented, and in 1958 polyester chiffon was invented and became immensely popular due to its resilience and low cost. Under a magnifying glass chiffon resembles a fine net or mesh which gives it some transparency.

Chiffon is (was) most commonly used in evening wear, especially as an overlay, for giving an elegant and floating appearance to the gown. It is also a popular fabric used in blouses, ribbons, scarves and lingerie. Like other crêpe fabrics, chiffon can be difficult to work with because of its light and slippery texture. Due to this delicate nature, chiffon must be hand washed very gently.

VER'E'NE Chiffon is smoother and more lustrous than the similar fabric georgette, and you just MUST come and see all the new pieces in this illustrious fabric by Ver'e'ne!

God bless you Beautiful Women, and know that YOU are marvelously made, and greatly Loved!
