I need to make a winter-style serafuku, BUT I want it somewhat lighter than would be accurate so I can wear it in warmer weather... but, I both need the skirt pleated, and want the shirt to have a little stretch so it's a bit more form-hugging than standard. I am SO lost on what fabric(s) I should use. Or at least which one for the top and which one forthe skirt that would match up well. My thought for the top is that stretchy cotton they use on turtleneck shirts, but I dunno if that would match with a heavy cotton/acrylic for the skirt.
