The study examined the influence of support fabrics on strength, elongation and time taken to complete the test for acetate, linen, rayon, and wool fabrics. ASTM D1683 was used with superimposed seams, ½ inch seam allowance and 301 stitch. It was hypothesized that support fabrics will increase breaking strength and time taken for break and elongation will decrease. Hypotheses were tested by t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Findings revealed that addition of lining enhanced breaking strength. Differences were noted for warp and weft directions. Mixed results were found for the time taken and elongation. So was true for the impact of interfacings. Even though this exploratory is needed beginning in the area of determining compatibility between and among the fabrics used in layered garments, there is need to repeat the research with other structural variables for refined understanding of these relationships. Some of the existing assumptions were supported and some were refuted.
