You can sew Cassandra in many different stretch fabrics for different looks. Try stretch velvet, stretch crepe or silk jersey for a party dress, or any stretch jersey with good drape for a day dress, such as cotton jersey, viscose or rayon jersey, or bamboo jersey. You can also use a heavier fabric with good drape for a winter Cassandra, such as scuba or ponte.
You will need a small amount of fusible interfacing to attach to the facing pieces.
