Anyone have a favorite fabric that breathes well but doesn't wrinkle too badly? I have made tops out of polyester and I regret it because I sweat all day. I want to make some flowy tops for layering in winter. (I'd use wool as my out most layer). I also just want to wash and dry. No dry cleaning in my life. :)

Rayon. Very drapey, made from natural fibers (wood pulp). I use it a lot for my tops. And you can buy it in several thicknesses: Crepe, challis, viscose, and another one I can't think of now.
