Adding Canvas to the Stole

by Carolyn

I have some polyester fabric for the stole, and I'm wondering if I need a canvas inside? The fabric is fairly heavy and I planned to use it on the front and back.

You suggested satin for the back. Is there a special reason why you prefer that to the same fabric?

If I use canvas, what kind do you suggest? There are several types.

You suggest basting the canvas on the satin on back, then hand sewing it all together. I was wondering if you could sew it front to back, front to front and then turn it right side out?

About how long should a stole be? should they go to the hem of a robe or if you aren't wearing a robe, how long would be a good length, or is it just a personal choice?
