I am making a halter neck dress for summer wear – obviously the bodice is lined. I have a very small bust and don’t really want to wear a bra in the heat so I was considering using a lightweight iron -on interfacing for the complete bodice front – do you think this is a good idea and should I apply it to the outer or lining fabric ? Just looking for other ideas or confirmation… Thanks 10th_aug_on_holiday_large

    I would try the interfacing on a scrap of both the fabric and the lining to see which looks the best. Interfacing on the fabric could effect the drape in a negative way. Then again it may be what the fabric needs. Play around with it and see which look you like.

      Thanks, decided against interfacing altogether as the fabric is a nice crisp cotton , and I have used the same fabric as the lining and this seems to give enough " body "

    Prefer muslin for bodice lining and may add interfacing to top and bottom of bodice for shaping. Would not put interfacing in body of bodice—may be too itchy against skin.
