Traveling in Spirals: What is Inside That Stole

I am making stoles for inventory this week. As I repeat construction tasks, I become more aware of these well honed practices.  Rarely does any one see what is inside of a stole.  I include interfacing.  The black fabric in the first photograph is a synthetic blend which contributes crispness and body to the stole. The white example below it is white flannel, often used to interline custom draperies.  It makes softer edges while adding body to the stole.  I often include a drapery weight at the hemlines so that the stole will hang well on the wearer.
