Hmmm it’s slightly sheer so I’d take a guess that it’s chiffon. Chiffon has a nice flow and softness to it. I have no experience with Jasmine’s Bridal, though!

@bndmusicfactory:  Ok, best to post a link to this on the main Jasmines post, currently at part 4.  There are lots of Bees on there with lots of experience with Jasmines as well as fabric that will be able to help you.  They might miss this thread.

I can guarantee that Jasmines designer tulle is amazingly soft.  They made my daughter’s veil.  I also had a dress made in designer grade Georgette which is extremely soft and flowy.

When you communicate use simple sentence structure, or preferably dot points under headings such as:

Refer to XXXXX see photo

Fabric Reference

1. outer layer

2. etc.

Hope you understand what I mean.  James has to translate your comments into Chinese for the actual seamstress to follow.

James really knows fabric.  I personally would follow his lead.

Don’t worry about the lining, no one is going to see it.  Jasmines’ dresses are extremely well made with lots of structure.  Although your dress looks soft and flowy, it is only the outer layers that give it that appearance.  The inner lining will be very structured to hold the dress up and give the softer outler layers a foundation. Therefore the lining part of the dress has to be a heavier fabric because it will contain the boning and it also needs to be strong enough to carry the inner corset.

The base layer needs to be strong for a corset. Duchess satin should be fine. You won’t see the shine under tulle and chiffon. And satin is a weave, it has nothing to do with material or weight. Just tell them you want a medium weight fabric for the base layer, and that you want it to flow. They should be able to cut it on the bias to get the draped effect.

My dress was made with an inner corset (though I didn’t use it) and can confirm that you need a strong base layer like duchess satin for the corset. You will not see the shine of the satin when all other layers are applied.
