About Duchess Satins
Duchess satin is one of the most luxurious fabrics available, which is why many people choose it for wedding gowns. Its soft feel and flattering look against the skin make it a popular choice for lingerie as well. The tightly woven fibres give it the signature sheen, as well as an increase in thread count for a soft feel. Designers often use this type of satin for wedding gowns because it flows to create an enchanting look. The versatile fabric pairs well with velvet, lace, organza, tulle, and chiffon to create several styles. While authentic duchess satin is made from 100 per cent silk, a more affordable version contains a blend of silk, polyester, rayon, and other fibres. This version does not shine as much, but still retains its shape and creates a flattering, flowing look. Find duchess satin cloth to work with, or purchase a dress made from this luxurious fabric on eBay. Create an elegant couture wedding gown or home decor item from your extravagant fabric.
