I am looking at the Burda Style July 2010 blouse 121 pattern. The suggested fabric is a blouse fabric with some body. What would fit that description? The model picture is in honan silk which is too expensive to get.

Shirting cotton, cotton poplin, cotton broadcloth, cotton sateen, linen, silk broadcloth, silk twill.

Not drapey fabrics like rayon challis or silk georgette/charmeuse, or very lightweight silks like habotai or cottons like gauze or lawn.

Thank you Debbie. I wasn't certain about cotton lawn and I haven't worked with a lot of other types to be able to pick easily.
