I make Halloween costumes for people and recently I’ve had a ton of requests for Oompa Loompa costumes (the little people from Willy Wonka and the Choc factory) I’ve made approx 60 so far, and the biggest complaint is that I make the pants out of white felt…….which once washed or worn more than once for more than 12 hrs doesn’t look the same. I make them out of felt because it’s the only fabric I can think of that holds it’s shape really good and that way the poofy pants look poofy. What are my options as far as types of material I could use for the pants …..that is affordable like felt, will hold it’s shape like felt, but is washable unlike felt?
Thanks so much
