What does this mean? A pattern I'm trying called for a "fabric with body" and I'm not understanding.  Huh

Thanks in advance!

Fabric with body, to my understanding, is fabric that has structure to it--it'll sort of support itself, or poof out on its own, depending upon how it's draped.  As opposed to a fabric like china silk, or challis, that just kind of hangs limply, no matter what you do with it.
