Rated 5 out of 5 by YesterdaysThimble Soft and Floaty
I recently ordered the nylon chiffon tricot in pink, blue, and white, with the intention of making some vintage-style doll lingerie. The white ended up being worthless, as it was very stiff. However, the pink and blue are lovely! Extremely soft and lightweight, very floaty, perfect for my project.
One caveat---the pink is brighter than I imagined it would be (based on the photo). When I pulled the folded yardage out of the envelope, it looked almost neon pink, but keep in mind that the tricot is semi-sheer, so if you're only using one or two layers, the color is diluted. The color will get stronger if you layer or tightly gather the fabric, which is something to consider when planning your project. For my purposes, it should work just fine. I'm tempted to order some of the other colors, too!
