Peasant Blouse With Hardanger

I'm hoping to make a flowing ruffled peasant blouse and replace the single edge cotton eyelet fabric with Hardanger work on a soft and flowing appropriate natural fabric.

What would work best? I can't imagine using 6 yards+ of waste canvas for such a project.

Thanks

Some suggestions
by: Carol

One of my favourite evenweave fabrics is Jobelin. It drapes well and is quite lightweight. However it is an approx 50/50 mix of natural and man made fibers, so it may not suit your requirements.

Alternatively, I would suggest a fine linen, perhaps a 32 count if you want a delicate piece of work.
