I love interfacings, they give great structure and support to any piece of fabric, some pieces without interfacing can feel weak and flimsy, but choosing the WRONG interfacing, and your garment can feel stiff and cheap. Is there some sort of guide of what type of fabrics go well with some interfacings? I know coats, jackets and blazers may need stiffer interfacings like Hymo , but what about pieces made from softer fabrics like charmeuse, crepe de chine, and cotton voile? What type of Interfacings can be used for these delicate fabrics, if any.. And if none are needed, how can you prevent them from feeling “cheap and flimsy?”
