Georgette is a sheer, lightweight, dull-finished crepe fabric named after the early 20th century French dressmaker, Georgette de la Plante. Our embroidered georgette has an intricate floral design and an attractive scalloped edge. The embroidered georgette comes in three classic colors and has a characteristic crinkly surface.

98% Polyester / 2% Lace

40 Inches Wide
Imported From France

Soft, pebbly texture due to the tight, crepe twist silk yarns - very soft drape

Has a velvety sheen due to the way the silk filaments reflect light, but is not particularly shiny

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you’re using Georgette for a tailored or heavily seamed garment, it’s best to use an interfacing like silk organza or  lightweight fusible knit interfacing
  • You can create volume in this very thin fabric by utilizing soft tucks, shirring, or sewing it with multiple layers
  • Fabric tends to move when laid out for cutting. Layer the fabric between two sheets of tissue thin paper before cutting to stabilize. Hold fabric in place using fabric weights or fine, sharp pins (like our extra fine pins). Keep cut fabric pieces pinned to tissue paper until right before you’re ready to sew
  • Hand-baste pattern pieces before sewing with a sharp, fine needle
  • Use tissue paper as backing when sewing seams together to help stabilize fabric – tear away once seam is secure
  • It’s best to only cut one layer at a time to avoid grain distortion.
  • Use a new, thin needle when sewing this fabric to avoid snags– especially when machine sewing
  • Use cotton, or cotton-covered polyester thread when sewing
  • Hold thread ends when beginning to avoid accidental shirring
  • The best finishes for georgette are French seams, or narrow (1/8″ – 1/4″) rolled hems

Dry clean only.
