ISO wrinkly crinkly muslin?

We have a queen size canopy bed's a fourposter metal bed.I've had it for years.. I had it my first apartment ..,when I bought it it had sort of a big scarf draped over? The scarf thing started at the floor went up the side, swagged across the top and went down the other side.

When the bed was on display it had the off-white muslin that was wrinkly and crinkly. I bought it that way but the intervening years I've misplaced that piece of fabric. I'm now trying to find the same fabric.

The best way I can describe it is that it's like what they call a broomstick skirt? Which is a very thin cotton that when you wash you take out damp and wrap around a broomstick to maintain all of the creases in it. Does anybody know what I'm talking about our where to get it? Thank you

Was it crinkle gauze?

Here is a link that might be useful: crinkle gauze

Yes, that's it! Crinkle gauze! the Calico Corners person had no idea, and kept looking in the books with sheers ... and I'm like ... uhh, lady, this was pretty junky fabric ...


thank you

RE: ISO wrinkly crinkly muslin?

Yeah, calico corners, not so much. You might find it at The Barn in Bpt, or maybe Discount Fabrics in Bpt has it...

You could have panels made with tab tops so theycould be pulled to or left open or just rearranged from time to time.

KSWL, Yes, in fact, that is what I tend to see on this type of bed now. Frankly, it's much nicer. But I really just want it like it was.

Annie, found it on line ... thanks again!
