I have not worked with any knits before but have a few dresses I would like to tackle. I definitely want to make a muslin first, but was not sure of what fabric you use for this. I am assuming it should have a stretch to mimic the knit, but do they sell a stretch muslin?

Thanks,
Barb

I use an inexpensive knit that has similar stretch, drape, and weight as the knit that I want to use.

Totally agree with Neefer. Just go down to the local Walmart and see if you can find something atrocious that shares similar properties to the 'good' stuff. I also pick up yardage from thrift stores for muslin use too. ;)
