Describes the weight of certain fabrics such as voile, organdie, muslin, organza–mainly transparent or semi-transparent, and used predominantly for sheer under-curtains, dressing tables and lampshades. By nature floaty, soft and feminine, lightweight fabrics can be beautifully showcased as flat panels to display an interesting weave, or gathered into very full skirts and valances. They come in almost any weave and possible finish: fine or crunchy, lacy or plain, with a very open or tightly constructed weave, gathered, frilled, pleated, or just left plain.
