One of the cheapest ways to drape is to use the lightweight, canvas drop clothes from the hardware store.  People use them for curtains and runners (google it and you’ll find tons of blogs with drop cloth drapes). 

Synthetic chiffon (polyester) is another good option, but you’ll need a lot to counter how transparent the fabric is.

By using drapery rings with clips, you won’t have to do any sewing to make rod pockets.  You might have to use some Stich Witchery to make hems.

My husband built me a backdrop using pvc pipe (concreted into can).  I used a fabric store coupon and bought lightweight lining fabric.  Not sure where you live, but other people I know have used something called “plant bed material” which is kind of like a cross between fabric and paper.  stapled to make a casing, then put onto PVC pipe, which was hung by wire from the ceiling.  Because the “fabric” was gathered a bit, you didn’t see the staples.  Just some thoughts.
