I give up. I have been trying to buy Chiffon scarves online and only found one outlet. I know it is difficult to get them near me. I am not sure if they still sell them in Cardiff Market. That is a long way to go, but needs must. Will have to keep on looking they are there I know. There are lots of search results but not for the product I want.
I wanted them to add on a background for my Lamppost pieces. I had one but now I need another two.
My mother used to wear them in the old days. She used to put one over her hat to keep it on when it was a windy day. I can remember hairdressers using them to keep your curlers in when you had a perm. Oh grief! What an image that has dredged up. Me in curlers!!
There are lots of uses for a chiffon scarf. You can layer them and produce colour changes, trap pieces of threads and materials underneath and embroidery on top to produce interesting surfaces. You can also melt and burn them to produce crunchy textures. I wanted a few black ones to layer to create a shadowy effect for my lamppost. I am sure there are lots more effects one can create too.
When I started using them in my embroidery projects you could pick them up very reasonably in charity shops but it has been a long time since I have seen them about.
I think I will phone Ghee she might have some in her stash of stuff.
