Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight woven fabrics with no stretch. Cotton (lawn, poplin, seersucker, shirting), linen, silk crepe de chine, poly crepe, and rayon/viscose challis or poplin work well. Structured fabrics will have more dramatic volume, and drapier fabrics will have more fluid movement.
