Mantua Madness: Organdy fontange vs organza fontange
Totally by accident, when I was trying on my two different fontanges to take photos I ended up in basically the same position. So I decided that would make a fun little animation to show the differences between the organza and the organdy. Yes, the two fontanges aren't quite the same design, the organza has three shorter tiers and the organdy has only two and is a bit taller, but I thought it was neat to see the juxtapostion.
Both fontanges have millinary wire supports covered in fabric. When I was looking at some trims on Etsy I had a sudden eureka that the satin ribbon I had used before, while lovely, was just too heavy and that the perfect thing would be a light weight wired taffeta ribbon. So I bought some black rayon wired ribbon and ended up with what you see below.
