You are right about the lame'. It won't hold up very well. I would try a gold in satin. There are lots out right now in the costume section at fabric stores. (NT)god luckFriday, September 08, 04:44:52pm

Don't use lame - it's a cheap fabric and it's not worth the time you will spend replacing the lining when it tears apart. I found a fantastic gold (at JoAnn Fabrics) that I used for a few dresses a couple years ago that was lightweight, but sturdy enough to hold up to this type of dance. If I can locate the name of the fabric I will post in a couple days. (NT)I need to researchSunday, October 01, 03:18:02pm
