Anyone know what I am talking about here? This is what I have been told it is called, but I am not positive. I have been searching for this stuff for a while, it is essentially a 'papery' material that is irridescant on one side, and sort of... plain, woven, rough cotton ( > ) material on the other side. It comes in various colours.

For kids of the 80's, rainbow brite's dress was made out of this (the shiny blue stuff), and various she-ra dolls had things made out of this, like she-ra and frosta's cape. Anyhow, I have been looking and looking for this  stuff, does anyone know of a store that has it in stock? Most fabric stores stare at me blankly (well, the staff, not the actual stores  Cheesy) and know nothing about this stuff...

thanks !
