I love my 8/2012 Burda Style magazine except my husband spilled mustard on the cover. ARghhhh!!!

My question is for the elegant dress style 102 on page 38. It says stretch rep fabric is recommended. I really do not know what this is. Could you give me a better description of the fabric such as fibre content, a knit or woven?

    Rep refers to a corded or ribbed fabric in wool, silk or cotton. So in this case it should also have stretch.
