What type of fabric to use for a poodle skirt?
I am planning on doing a poodle skirt for Halloween this year. I have been doing research on what type of fabric to use for the skirt but I do not want to use felt or felt like fabric. Some website tell me not to use silk and other do others say cotton others don't.All i know is that I should use stiff fabric.
I do not know much about fabric, looking for some recommendations to make a poodle skirt. Something that looks like the real deal, just not felt
The original Poodle skirts were felt - because they have no weave and the fabric was easy to work with. You could use wool flannel, but you need to be careful or it will warp and won't fall right. Felt is really the easiest - anything else is going to give you trouble.
