so last Christmas my awesome boyfriend bought me a new sewing machine and I am loving it. I've sewn everything around this place and then some. I was cleaning out our closet and seen that we had those lovely bedskirts from our comforter sets. We never use these ever and I decided since I used old pillowcases and sheet sets for different projects, why not use the bedskirts as well? so I went to work separating the part that hangs down, "the skirt", from that white material that sits under the mattress. my question is what is the white material and could I use it as a substitute for interfacing?

Not all bed skirt "white material" is created equal, but there's no reason why any fabricy stuff can't be used as interfacing. Folks use lots of different stuff for interfacing. If the thickness and stiffness is up to your standards on a particular project, then go for it.
