canvas interlining
Explanation:
Sounds silly, I know, but this is the expression used in the rag trade in England, even though the interlining may be made of horsehair. It's a panel under the material you see, stretching from the shoulders to just below the chest.
Information from a professional tailor in Northampton, UK.
