I think any polyester material will work. Of course, not too thick one. Chiffon, satin, organza, suedette, peach skin, crepe, polyester taffeta, polyester shantung, almost everything. I won't suggest tulle, the edge won't curl enough. I won't suggest silk, either, as if it's 100% silk it'll burn, if it silk blend with a percentage of polyester, you may be able to singe it but the silk in it will burn and it will leave a dark mark around the edge.
