This pattern can be made in a wide range of fabrics depending on the drape and fit you desire. For a defined shape use slightly stiffer woven such as a light linen or cotton twill, sateen or chambray. For a more floaty and glamorous look use a viscose, rayon or silk. Make sure you use lightweight fabrics as a heavy fabric will create unwanted bulk in the back waist band.
