2) It is always best to pre-wash your fabrics and press them before you start cutting. The general rule for washing voile is machine wash warm, normal cycle with like colors. Use only non-chlorine bleach, and then line dry. Use a warm iron for pressing when necessary. Since everyone’s washers, dryers, and irons are different, I highly recommend that you use a small test piece of fabric before washing your full yardage.
4) You can interface voile, but you will want to use a lightweight fusible interfacing. When making a garment, it is usually best to line your project with a lightweight fabric (such as another voile) rather than interfacing.
