I was asking an honest question I hoped this would be a helpful not a negative
group.

We are being positive and we're giving you our honest, thought out
opinion.  You may not agree with what we are saying but have you
or this girl thought how burlap would feel against the skin?
There's a reason burlap is used for sacks and to wrap tree roots
when being transported and not for clothing.

If she needs a costume for the school play for "Lil' Abner" then
I'd say go for it.

Of course. Sergeant Bilko made an army uniform from burlap. It stretches/sags terribly, and is unusable in more ways than one for clothing.

You asked for opinions  and you got them. The experience in this group  
says that "Burlap" which I don't know as a fabric, I am assuming Hessian  
  from the answers, will be unwearable unless lined with soft cotton/  
flour sacks perhaps.
So you got an answer. The fact it wasn't the answer you wanted  is a  
shame but I don't think folks have been unhelpful despite the fact that  
the answer is an overwhelming negative .
The answer can be helpful and negative.
