This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’.  As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering.   Take into account any additional length etc.
Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible.  If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

‘Eleganza’ is a black silk georgette base with an applied rayon floral design.  It is an exquisite fabric, reminiscent of the florals of a certain Italian designer label.  This fabric, alongside the other two designer end silks (‘Paloma X’ and ‘Lucia’s Garland’) were fortunate finds.  ‘Eleganza’, would be a unique choice for a special event, but I can also see it as a camisole, simple boxy top, pussy bow blouse, wrap top, all worn quite casually with denim or stretch wovens.  A Kimono or another robe also seem to beckon.  With a slip, or soft or more structured lining, it would also make a one-of-a-kind dress. 

For your cloth edit consider:  loose or wrap tops, with the opportunity for a statement sleeve; blouses; dresses (eg. wrap, kaftan, trapeze, tunic); a kimono or robe (short or full length).

Silk georgette is delicate, as it is so fine, but it’s comparatively strong.  It’s absorbent, warm, resilient and quite elastic.  It is perfect for a transitional garment, but given the right style, would be wonderful throughout summer.

Cloth Care:

While silk is strong, it is very elastic and thus machine washing is out of the question.  The general advice is to Dry Clean only.  Hand Wash at your own risk.  If you risk hand-washing, always test a sample of fabric first.  If a printed fabric ‘bleeds’ then you need to Dry Clean.  Wash solid colours separately.  Silk can only be hand wash using a gentle detergent such as a baby shampoo or specialist silk detergent as the chemicals and bleach in regular washing liquids and powders will damage the cloth and make it dull.  If hand washing use cool water.  Hot water is harmful.  Wash inside out and handle the garment or cloth with care.  Gently move around the soapy water.  You can let it soak for a little while.  Rinse by gently holding the cloth or garment in your hands until the water runs clear.  Do not bleach, wring, or tumble dry. Do not spot clean silk.  Dry flat in shade as the sun can yellow light colours.  Use a warm iron and spot test.
