As you’ve advanced your sewing skill set, you’ve likely also expanded your fabric and garment-making repertoire. Perhaps you’ve ventured into more unusual or complex clothing or costlier fabrics and notions. But if you’re still using the same standard interfacings, you’re probably not achieving the best possible results.

If you take the time to learn about the different specialty interfacings available and to test them with various fabrics, you’ll be better equipped to make informed decisions. In this article from Threads #165, Louise Cutting will tell you about several high-quality fusible interfacings, their characteristics and best uses, and how to pretreat them.
