Silk crepeline is ultralight and sheer. It’s a stiff fabric with virtually no drape that really holds its shape, a quality it retains even after washing. Used widely in textile restoration to secure damaged areas and support fine, delicate fabrics and garments, it can also find any range of applications in your sewing studio.

Don’t hesitate to put crepeline under the spotlight as a fashion fabric. The billowy layers of Cinderella’s periwinkle dress in the 2015 Disney film are made of this simple material. You won’t need a fairy godmother to conjure up diaphanous sleeves, extravagant new creations, and delicate accessories.

Crepeline can be used to prop up more delicate fabrics like crepe de Chine and silk charmeuse by backing pattern pieces to help them keep their shape. When embroidering on delicate fabrics, use crepeline as an inconspicuous interface that you just stitch to the back and then trim to match the motif. Crepeline is also a practical underlayer for light, breezy garments where you want to maintain a featherweight airiness.

Compared with silk organza, crepeline has a looser weave and is sheerer, softer, and smoother.
