Hi! My daughter is having a lyrical costume made and I am just wondering what material everyone uses for the skirt. I know a lot use chiffon. The chiffon at the store by us isn't that great, so I was wondering if you buy it online somewhere and if there is a different type of material that works great for a skirt.

I have used mesh more often than chiffon. It stretches nicely and you don't need to hem it. SpandexHouse has a great variety, as does Spandex World. Both are online. (I should note I have never ordered online from either because they are semi-local for me).

I also use mesh for most skirts, for the same reasons as tendumom said. I do order online from both of those sources as well. It is fairly inexpensive, though shipping is not, but they tend to ship pretty quickly. I live on the east coast, and usually get it within a couple of days of ordering. Once or twice, from Spandex House, I got it the next day!
