The delicacy of the material makes it an exclusive material! Fortunately, today’s technologies
technologies allow great imitations in polyester that bring the finishes closer to a more economical and accessible to everyone.
The use of taffeta spread throughout Europe and is now very popular in Asian fashion for its effect on draping and moulage-style pattern pieces. As we mentioned, the fact that it is a thin, lightweight fabric allows us to create large volumes that hold themselves in the garment.
The PatternCos team uses this type of fabric repeatedly. As you can see in some of the garments we have made, the drapes made with this type of fabric create interesting hard textures, but they are not too heavy.
The seams are fine and the deep pleats bring light and a very elegant finish!
But taffeta fabric is not only at the service of draping and external volumes to the body,it is also very easy to weave to achieve anatomical finishes.
It adapts very easily to shapes, so working it with bustier, corset or cocktail bodice patterns are a great option to reveal the elegance of the fabric.
