Gorgeous georgette in great colors is this year’s hot trend for cool summer flower prom girl dresses. A sheer, lightweight, crêpe fabric, georgette is named after the early 20th century French modiste, Georgette de la Plante. Originally made of silk, and later of rayon or blends, modern georgette is often made from synthetic filament yarns. Its crinkly surface is created by alternating S- and Z-twist yarns in both warp and weft. ‘Warp’ is the set of lengthwise yarns through which the weft (horizontal thread) is woven to create the fabric.
Georgette dresses turn every little princess into the belle of the ball. Georgette dresses can be found in various styles including double ruffle dresses with a sleeveless bodice and removable flower and sequin trim. A jewelry stone neckline and bottom ruffle trim on a georgette skirt dress makes every little girl feel like a princess. The intricate detail on georgette dresses adds that extra element of elegance.
Georgette is often seen in tea-length styles and is a smart choice for girls’ summer dresses. Indeed, with its light, airy feel, georgette is a perfect fabric for beach flower girl dresses. Georgette dresses will suit any special occasion during the summer.
Usually, georgette is in bold colors such as flashy fuchsia, pretty purple, or terrific turquoise. These bright colors will make a big splash at any wedding. The vibrant colors can continue in accessories such as pink handbags, pink/fuchsia metallic flowers shoes, or a small bling French hair clip. Remember that georgette has that French connection.
Actually, bold color is showing up more and more in summer flower girl dresses. Many brides still choose soft pastels for their summer weddings such as pale pink all over laced gowns for their flower girls. Yet an ever-increasing number of brides are going with bold and beautiful colors in fine fabrics.
An orange halter top organza adds good style and sunny flavor to a summer wedding. A yellow 3-tier chiffon sequence dress is another sunny choice. Turquoise chiffon is a bright, beautiful fabric – perfect for a beach flower girl dress.
A teal seersucker gown adds two cool summer colors in a single style. Often a taffeta waistband or a sensational sash can add an extra touch of color. This summer’s winning styles for flower girl dresses will be about great colors – and especially – gorgeous georgette.
