Voile is a lightweight, plain woven fabric usually made from 100% cotton or cotton blend. It has the higher thread count than most cotton fabrics, which results in a silky soft hand. Voile fabric is a perfect dressmaking option for summer because it is lightweight, breathable and semi-sheer.
Voile comes in a wide range of colours and prints. From always trendy flowers and stripes to polka dot and geometry, they are what you would call ‘sunshine ready’ – ready to be turned into flowing dresses, tunics, skirts, tops, lingerie, loungewear and children’s clothes. Cotton voile fabric easily makes the top five fabrics best suitable for summer apparel.
