84″ organza

Bubs | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

Hi,

My friend asked me if I could help her out with overlays for round tables for her daughters wedding.  She found a website to rent them, but they were kind of costly.  So, my question is…does anyone know of a place to buy organza that is 84″  wide. (Otherwise the overlay would have a seam in it)  I tried calling a store in NYC and then a couple of websites.  I’ve been told that it only comes in 60″ wide.  Any help would be appreciated.

I just joined Gatherings and am looking forward to new ideas and inspiration.

Thanks.

    I've never seen it any wider than 60.  You might want to get in touch with dharmatrading.com  they've got some cottons in 90 inch wide and they may be able to help you locate some wider organza.

        There are sellers of draper/decorating fabrics that offer extra wide widths (up to 120") in sheers.  Try extra wide drapery fabrics--you will also find sites that sell by the pound and I have used by the pound fabric to decorate for proms, etc.  Homespunfabrics also offers extra wide.  I don't know how wide your tables are, but if they are round, and the seam is close to the floor, the seam will be very short and thus inconspicuous.  Work this out on paper to see how small the add-on will be and you and the bride may be happier.  God bless you as you sew.  Galey

          Thank you so much for your information.  I look forward to searching for the right fabric that will make my friend happy.

    A seam down the middle of the table cloth is merely an opportunity to add a table runner in her wedding colors!

      The organza would be the color of the bridal party, but that is a good idea.  Maybe an organza table runner to add color instead of a topper.  Thank you for responding.

    I've bought sheer drapery fabric up to 120" wide and damask up to 90" wide at my local Fabricland, so I'm sure it would be available at Joann's or Hancocks.  Definitely available from drapery shops, but what the cost would be, I couldn't guess.

    To make it without a seam, you will need 84" plus hem for each tablecloth, so the per yard cost might add up rather quickly.

    As Galey said, you may wish to join the fabric together closer to the bottom of the tablecloth.  I have a round table cloth pattern that shows this method.  Let me know if you'd like the instructions for that.

    You could also consider doing a centre cloth or a table runner to place over the table cloths supplied by the venue.  Or you could go with a table topper that would extend over the edges of the table by about 6" all the way around, or even doing a square large enough to hang below the table's edge.

      I have a Fabricland in my area, that sounds like a reason to go for a visit.  Thank you for your great suggestions.  I will give the options to my friend to get her opinion.

      I agree that a square topper looks great over a round under-cloth, with the corners hanging down in points over the sides.
