Silk Charmeuse and Satin Fabric
Silk charmeuse is a lightweight silk fabric. It's deliciously soft and it drapes oh so beautifully. Charmeuse is created by a satin weave, but what is referred to simply as silk satin is a little bit lighter and flowier than what is referred to as charmeuse. If there's a sultry or vintage evening gown in the back of your mind, this might just be the section to browse. Charmeuse is smooth, has a semi-lustrous satin face and a dull back, and it's a favorite for blouses and lingerie. We’ve seen some beautiful sleepwear made from silk charmeuse as well. Silk charmeuse can be dyed or printed for a range of colors and patterns. While this fabric doesn’t stand up well to heavy structuring, it can be gathered into a loose fullness and tends to be very flattering in less fitted cuts.
