Traditionally, the fabric was made from silk with a plain weave, making for a lightweight, soft and beautiful fabric. Of course, you might ask: why not just call it silk? Well, not all silk fabrics are the same, as you probably know. Organza usually features a loose weave, giving it a transparent quality, making it great for more elegant and complex clothing designs. Organza is extremely light and see-through which makes it ideal for layers which can add volume to a dress or skirt. 

When sewing with organza material it is best to take your time. Because it is a sheer fabric it can be very slippery, making it difficult to work with for a beginner. When washing organza, you can either do it by hand or in a washing machine. Be sure to wash it in cool or warm water on a delicate cycle. It is best to hang to dry to avoid any heat damage to the material. If you have to iron it, wait until it is completely dry and iron on the lowest possible heat setting.

Organza is not just made from silk, there are a variety of options. Depending on where the fabric is from, you could see either polyester or nylon in the mix, and some forms of organza which cut out silk altogether. Be sure take a look at the fiber content before buying in order to make the best selection. View our selection of organza fabric here.
