Voile

Semi-transparent and sheer, voile is made from cotton or wool; other types of voile are made from worsted silk or synthetic fibers like polyester. You can find voile fabric with Swiss dots or dotted swiss (evenly spaced circular thread embellishments that are either woven, embroidered, flocked, or printed) applied to it. Lightweight and breathable, voile is perfect for hot weather. Summer brides, take note: Because of its elegant yet causal appearance, voile is perfect for informal weddings.
