Alternatives to commercial interfacing?
I just fused some knit interfacing to a cotton and while it works fine it gives me the creeps! Why am I putting polyester and glue on a nice cotton?! It has been years since I have used fusible interfacing and I wasn’t too thrilled about it then either, but I thought I would give it try in case it was much improved. It works but I really don’t like working with it!
I use silk organza on silks for a soft touch and I like softer types of clothing in general, bias – my new favorite sewing, and drapey things without collars so there isn’t much need for crisp or structured anything. Now I am making some shirts for my son (since he is old enough to wear what I make him again) one cotton and one rayon in Hawaiian style. The cotton is fused already but I can’t make myself do it to the rayon. Does anyone have a favorite alternative to commercial interfacing to use with rayon?
