I want to make this top NewLook 6213.
Is Charmeuse a hard fabric to work with?

Challis is less slippery and often is drapier depending on weight, so yes, it could be easier to use. For that pattern you'd definitely want a fabric that's drapy and not stiff.

Challis is easy to work with. Charmeuse is not so easy. You should just get some and try it because the only way you will know if you like working with a fabric is to try it. That pattern would be nice in either fabric.
