Go to a fabric store and look at their selection of fabric. What you're going to want is something that flows nicely and preferably a natural fiber. Hold it over your hand and see how it drapes over your hand. It has a tiny bit of weight to it but it's not stiff if that makes sense?
I've never had that problem (I used it for Fire Nation Katara), but what she said!
