What kind of interfacing should I use?

Choosing Interfacing

The type of interfacing you choose will depend on what you want for the finished garment. Do you want a firm tailored look or something soft and drapable? Woven interfacing will add strength and stability. Knit interfacings are more flexible and have more drape. Non-wovens are the least likely to shrink.
