Velvet, medium-heavy weight cotton, seersucker and linen may also be used. Please note: tightly woven, smooth surfaced suitings like wool gabardine are not recommended since they can be difficult to fuse using an iron.  For the lining: rayon bemberg, charmeuse, crepe de chine, smooth and silky cottons such as voile.  For the pockets: sturdy cotton like shirting, quilting cotton or muslin (1/4 yd / .25m)
