Answer
Hi Julia,

Definitely chiffon! Chiffon is the fabric you always see on bridal and formal dresses. It's softer to the touch, and it's more supple.

Tulle is generally only used as an underlayer, like a crinoline that gives puffy structure to a skirt. It's rougher, and it doesn't have much fluidity to it.

Happy Sewing!

Expertise

I can answer many questions related to craft sewing, fashion design, pattern drafting, clothing alterations, clothing repair, and simple home decor sewing projects. I can not answer question about machine repair/maintenance, quilting, knitting, embroidery or needlepoint.

Experience

I have been designing and sewing clothing and accessories professionally since 2003. I have two years of experience teaching basic machine sewing classes for adults. I have experience altering clothing and drafting sewing patterns for women's wear. Currently I own a retail shop with a sewing studio, where I design and produce my line of women's wear, and also offer custom sewing to clients.

Education/Credentials
Although I'm mostly self taught, I have taken some advanced online pattern drafting and clothing alterations classes. Of course, nothing beats actual hands on work, and I have over ten years of experience in professional sewing and fashion design.
