Silk pongee is a fine, smooth fabric, pleasant against the skin, that breathes well. These qualities make it an excellent lining for even the lightest garments, such as blouses and dresses. It resembles habotai, but is lighter. It can take the center stage in accessories such as scarves and kerchiefs (pongee is an excellent fabric for silk painting)and can be used for making tops and tunics. But beware, pongee is sheer and requires a loose cut to prevent tearing at the seams.

Pongee drapes well–it is not as fluid as crêpe de Chine or chiffon, yet not so stiff as organza. It tends rather to form soft folds and attractive billows. It is easier to cut and sew than fabrics like chiffon and crêpe de Chine, making it a good choice for intermediate sewers.
