5 of 5 Historical clothing lining :) August 14, 2020
Reviewer: Riley Adams from Huntsville, AL United States  
I am using this as an interlining for late 1800s clothing reproduction and it’s perfect! Tarlatan was originally used for this historically, but now I believe it’s mostly used for printing. Either way, I’m so glad I found this company - great quality, great prices and fast shipping :)

In case anyone out there happens to be in the same boat as me, I ordered the “stiff” option and was a bit worried it would be too stiff but decided to try it anyway and it seems like it will work perfectly.
