A beautiful rare marquisette skirt telling the story of the Princesses and Duchesses before WWII who were fond of this fabric and the lavishing embroidery sewn inch by inch with the hand of craftswomen using only candle light.
Marquisette is a sheer, lightweight mesh or net fabric with a leno weave. It can be made from almost any fibre: silk, cotton, wool, rayon, nylon, polyester and a blend of any of the above. It is used for dresses, curtains, and mosquito netting. It is very similar to grenadine, but with a slightly more open weave. Marquisette can look quite different depending on the fibres used and variants and finished applied to the weave.
