I don't think the heavier fabric will need more length than you planned, it will simply droop. I have found that heavier fabric required heavier weight elastic. The button hole elastic is quite a heavy weight and should work, however, if not available consider a less stretchy and heavier band for heavier fabrics.

Let us know what works.
