I'm new to sewing and I'm trying to choose the right fabric for a dress I want to make. I've been researching online and I've come across two options that seem to fit my needs: crepe fabric and cotton lawn. However, I'm not entirely sure how they compare in terms of weight and drape.
I'm looking for something that has a nice fluid drape, but isn't too heavy or stiff. I want the dress to flow nicely and move with me as I walk. I also don't want it to be too see-through, so I'm looking for a fabric that has some opacity.
Can anyone help me understand the differences between crepe fabric and cotton lawn when it comes to weight and drape? Which one would be better suited for my needs? I appreciate any advice or input you can give me. Thank you!
