3 to 4 yards drapey WOVEN fabric that tears both lengthwise and crosswise such as rayon, silk or polyester. It may be all one fabric or 2 or 3 coordinating fabrics. I highly recommend "Sew Batik" rayons at sewbatik.com for beautiful quality, beautiful drape and beautiful design, that way we'll both know you got the "right" fabric. Sew Batik rayon is not, however, required. No jacquards, please, they don't tear.
Pencil with eraser; Tape measure for sewing; Quilt binding clips; Straight pins; 3 cones thread to match/coordinate with fabric or use class threads available in black, white, ecru or gray.; Chalk or marking pencil/pen that will show on your fabric.
