The cotton suggestions on the envelope are gauze and voile. Lawn could be stubstituted for voile. Lawn and voile can be all cotton, I've also seen blends. It also mentions handkerchief linen. I've seem faux handkerchief linen that was cotton/poly.
Stay away from the slippery polyesters, they can be difficult to cut and sew.
Same with gauze, some 'grow' while you're working with them.
I like that pattern, I'm going to pick it up.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.
