Where can i find elastic fabric

Years ago I made sun dresses for my kids out of a fabric that had elastic thread through one side of it.  All you had to do was sew one seam.  I’m trying desperately to find that fabric again but I have no idea what the name was or where to look for it in todays markets.

I sure hope someone there is old enough to remember the fabric and what it is called.


Thank You for your help.
