- May 5, 2003Hello!
I am some-what new to the list (two months) so I have never posted only

I have constructed several truncated hennins experimenting with fabrics
and I find that cotton velvet and wool work great! Even a heavier weight
linen will handle well and lay nice. Personally I prefer cotton velvet.
Just my two cents
