Alternative Interfacing for a Wool Coat
Need some advice on my current winter coat project…
Vogue 2988 Jacket A calls for 60″ wide fusible knit interfacing – couldn’t be found at my local Jo-Ann’s (what a shock, hee hee) so I have 2 options:
1. use the 20″ wide fusible knit interfacing, but piece it together as the pattern pieces are wider than the interfacing, or
2. sew in muslin instead of a fusible interfacing.
This is my first coat project, the fabric is a heavy woven wool (great find at the sewing expo), and the jacket is fully lined (lining nearly finished, so I’m anxious to get the outside finished and put the two together).
Which is the better choice?
