What's the difference between chiffon and tulle?
Hi everyone, as the title says, I'm just wondering what the difference is between silk chiffon and tulle? As some of you know I'm having my dress made and have to choose the fabric. The dressmaker suggested silk chiffon as an option but I've seen so many dresses that look like chiffon but turn out to be tulle, and just wondered why she hadn't mentioned it as an option. Whether it just slipped her mind, or because its much more expensive (or not easily available in New Zealand)? Does anyone happen to know? Do they look very different on dresses? Tulle looks stiffer for example. Hope my ramblings make sense! It's nearly my bed time on this side of the world!! Ha ha!
