hey there, am pretty much confused with pocket flaps on whether to put interfacing them or not. should i ? if yes, should it be hard interfacing or soft interfacing? i checked my jacket and it feels like it doesn’t use any interfacing. your advice would be a great help for me!

    Yes it provides support and shape to the flap, read this information: http://www.fabriclandwest.com/Notion_basics/Interfacing/interfacing.htm

      thanks for the reply. but should i use a hard interfacing for a stiff feel&look or just a soft one which just doesnt make much difference?

    What fabric are you using? Usually as stated in the above site it should be slightly lighter than fashion fabric. There is also an interfacing chart. Makes sure you preshrink the interfacing (woven and fusible) and fabric if washable. Test the interfacing on fabric, they do not have to be stiff the interfacing helps keep the shape and supports top stitching and maybe buttonhole if added, needed for the flaps. Interfacing comes in different weights from sheer to heavy.
