Hi everyone, I’m looking at ideas for Haĺloween and am thinking if using the Simplicity 8411 pattern (one of their historical dress designs for a wide hipped, bodiced dress). It recommends using dupioni, brocade, faille etc. but I have a total crush on Alexander Henry’s Tree of Life print and would love to use that instead. I’ve used AH cotton before to make corsets, it’s lovely and soft and I think would drape relatively well. Does anyone see their being any issues in substituting cotton for the suggested fabrics? Thank you.

    I don’t see where there would be a problem/ Costumes are more forgiving than regular clothing.

    Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the mallow family Malvaceae. The fiber is almost pure cellulose.
