Organdie fabric is a fine, lightweight fabric. It is a sheer, cotton muslin fabric. This fabric is woven in a plain weave and the yarns are generally combed before weaving. The fabric is then treated with acid of starch during finishing giving it a stiff, crisp feel. Organdie is used mainly for dresses, blouses, hats, aprons and children’s clothing. Organdie is one of the crispest fabrics ever made, and for this reason it is very prone to wrinkling. ‘Stiff’ organdie is the most common, but two more finishes are available. These are ‘semi-stiff’ and ‘soft.’ These two types of organdie are mainly used for summer wear and garments that require drapery.
