It's me that's bored enough to blog. The posts are interesting enough.

Difference Between Georgette and Chiffon February 20, 2008

One search term that constantly turns up on my blog stats is “difference between georgette and chiffon”. There is no real information in the post that gets thrown up by google. So let me be a good netizen and post some relevant content… And also show off my newly acquired knowledge. 😛

Georgette and Chiffon are two types of fabric (duh!) that are used to achieve a flowy, princess like effect. While that sounds cute. There are a few pointers to remember…

Georgette is a weave that twists the yarn. And because of this, the fabric has a springy feel to it. Chiffon is more net like.

Georgette is thicker. So you can trust it to hold heavy work. Chiffon, I am not sure. I would not experiment with a work on chiffon sari.

And most important, georgette drapes well. So does chiffon, of course. But being more transparent, chiffon saris are recommended only for women with toned, perfect midriffs worth exposing. Chiffon saris are meant to be single layer transperant pallu. So be sure you want that. Doesn’t matter what the colour is, it will still be very net like and see through.

Chiffon is lighter though. Georgette saris would stay in place better than chiffon because they’re heavier.

I’m biased towards georgette. Please excuse… 😛

And oh! Since both fabrics can be woven from silk and polyester, ensure that you touch the material and be sure you’re not being cheated…

Is this information enough?

All right then… Someone tell me this…

What is a pure crape/crepe sari? What is the difference between Georgette and Chiffon and which is more expensive? What does an antique finish mean? How do you recognize a real Kanchi Pattu? How can you tell that the zari is 100%? How do you recognize a high end Pochampalli sari? What is the difference between a Venkatagiri and a Gadwal weave? Which is easier to maintain? Crepe or Chiffon? Does net really look elegant in a Ghaghra?

The one who answers most gets a prize!

[begin crib] 

I want…

  1. A couple of days to all alone when I can be with myself, pamper myself and just return relaxed and with clear skin
  2. Someone to handle administrative details of planning vacations, tickets, trips and such like
  3. To not worry about foreign exchange
  4. To skip my appraisal at work…
  5. To not appear a constant whiner.

When I think back, I realize that in the last two years, the only real time I spent by myself doing nothing was one day in Bombay.

I just want some time by myself. Aaarrrghhhh!!
