Suggested fabric

Choose a supple woven fabric, light to medium weight. As far as fibers are concerned, viscose, cotton, silk are appropriate. You can opt for crepe or poplin, as well as a flannel that is not too thick.
Avoid too fabrics that are too soft and weighty which could flatten the pleats instead of accentuating the design.
