So this is the costume I am making for Halloween. I cannot for the life of me figure out what to use for the top. Some type or ribbed material, but on denverfabric, hancock fabric, joann- and the like a search for ribbed fabric doesn't narrow it down. Is it a technique or a fabric that I don't know the name for??

Once I figure out the fabric I am good, the cloak I am just going to use a crushed velvet for, its for trick or treating with my kids (and possibly a parade) so movie accuracy isn't necessary- not that that stops me from trying LOL. If I have to a plain black long sleeve shirt will work.

It might be "ribbed knit fabric" or "rib knit fabric"    Huh
