neutral  xxxohlala: Tissu de confection, peut-être même le "drap" qui permet la confection de costumes...Au contraire le drap est utilisé pour la confection des costumes : c'est un tissu mi-léger, mi-lourd et qui a beaucoup d'aplomb, qui tombe bien !

  -> Oui, mais tissu pour confection et drap ne sont pas aussi spécifique. Confection et drap comprennent des tissus beaucoup plus fins pour la confection de chemises/chemisiers.
