My dress had an organza overlay it wasn’t shiny or wrinkly…do they have a sample you could look at in person?

@EffieTrinket:  I’d suggest taking a look at the samples.  There are organzas that are shiny and that aren’t so shiny.  A thick organza is slightly more opaque as opposed to a thin organza.  Have a look at the swatches and decide from there.  It may not be as bad as you’re anticipating.

I see what you mean about the shiny factor. The thicker 70 definitely looks a lot less shiny than the 50 though. Can you find pics of any other organza dresses the company has made to see what they look like shine wise?

Ugh. Oh, no! Is there a chiffon dress that you guys all like?

If there isn’t, what is the lining made of? Most organza dresses are lined in satin (which will REALLY make it look shiny). If you can find the dress or get the dress lined in a matte fabric, it will temper the shine of the organza!
