Suitable fabrics: Poplin, linen, or other plain weave fabrics.Underlining: 2/3 yard of lightweight cotton broadcloth
The underlining can be a lightweight cotton broadcloth or other similar fabric. Use of fusible interfacing in place of underlining is not recommended, as the interfacing may stiffen fabric. That is not the intended purpose of the underlining.
