We offer a range of fusible interfacings which can be ironed onto the reverse of your fabric in order to provide additional structure.
Our fusible interfacings are as follows:
Lightweight fusible knit interfacing (available in Black & White) 75cm width
Use this interfacing for stretch fabrics (including jersey knits) as well as fine fabrics such as satins and lighter-weight wools. It’s a very lightweight interfacing but it will add stability and structure whilst retaining the drape and ease of your fabric. It can be used for areas of a garment (e.g. facings and panels) that need to retain their movement and drape.
Lightweight fusible interfacing (available in Black & White) 90cm width
Use this interfacing for lighter-weight non-stretch fabrics, e.g. cotton lawns, crepe-de-chine, satins, shirtings and lighter-weight wools. It’s a lightweight interfacing that is best used for areas of your garment that need additional structure, including collars and cuffs.
Medium-weight fusible interfacing (available in White) 90cm width
Use this interfacing for light- to medium weight non-stretch fabrics, e.g. suitings. It’s a light-to-medium weight interfacing that is best used for areas of your garment that need additional shape structure, including collars and cuffs, but which you don’t want to be too stiff.
All our interfacings are Vlieseline-branded.
This image shows how our interfacing changes the structure of a satin fabric. Clockwise from top left:
- No Interfacing – fabric hangs straight down
- Lightweight fusible knit interfacing – fabric falls into rounded folds
- Lightweight fusible interfacing – fabric falls into angled folds
- Medium weight fusible interfacing – fabric holds shape.
If you need to check which type of interfacing is most appropriate for your fabric, then please just drop us a line – we’re always happy to advise! We plan to stock interfacing for heavier fabrics in due course.
- Use a cool iron (without steam) to press the interfacing onto the reverse of your fabric. Press each area for about 10 seconds.
- ALWAYS test your interfacing on a spare scrap of fabric first!
- Garments with interfacing can be washed in the way that you would usually wash the main fabric in your garment. Check the Fabric care instructions for your fabric for details.
