Wonderful Word Wednesday: Gossamer

It's Wonderful Word Wednesday again! Do you as a writer ever struggle finding that perfect word to describe something or you want to shake your writing up with some new words? Each Wednesday I post hand-picked descriptive words for writers and other vocabulary nerds out there. ;) This such a pretty word. ^ ^
1.) a fine, filmy cobweb seen on grass or bushes or floating in the air in calm weather, especially in autumn.
2.) a thread or a web of this substance.
3.) an extremely delicate variety of gauze, used especially for veils.
4.) any thin, light fabric.
5.) something extremely light, flimsy, or delicate.
6.) a thin, waterproof outer garment, especially for women.

Example Sentence: Dina selected a gossamer fabric for her next dress.

A dress like one Dina would make.
Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?
