Main fabric for woven blazer: Mid- to heavy-weight wovens, such as suiting or tweed, made from wool, linen, or wool blends. Lightweight coating also suitable. Avoid fabrics with a very smooth surface like gabardine, as they will likely shine when pressed.
Main fabric for stretch blazer: Mid- to heavy-weight knit fabric such as stable ponte, or mid-weight stretch wovens such as stretch suiting.
Body lining: If using a non-stretch woven, use a light- weight woven lining such as rayon bemberg or crepe de chine. If using a stretch woven or ponte, use a knit lining for the body, such as ITY or other slick jersey.
Sleeve lining: Light-weight woven lining such as rayon bemberg or or crepe de chine, for both stretch & non-stretch blazers.
Pocket lining: Stable woven such as quilting cotton or shirting.
Interfacing: Mid-weight weft fusible interfacing and mid- weight knit fusible interfacing. Optional: use heavier weight interfacing for pocket welt; fusible horsehair canvas can be used for chest shield interfacing.
