applying interlining to outer winter coat
need help with steps to take when using: outer fashion fabric, interfacing, interlining and lining coat using V1097 pattern. the pattern itself offers no mention of installing a (warm element) to this coat. I’d love to construct this item and make it “winter worthy.” HELP!
Interlining is the same as underlining, I believe. It is sewn as one with the fashion fabric--that is, the 2 layers are treated as one. I have used lightweight wool for this (recycled from an unsuccessful garment), as well as a preshrunk cotton flannel. It may help to use a spray adhesive such as 505 between the layers. There used to be a woven lining fabric with a satin face and fleece back--anyone know if this is still out there? The weight of the interfacing should be adjusted to the weight of the FF-IL layer. I'm sure Threads has had at least one article on this; you might want to search the online index. Fellow sewers, am I right? Don't let me lead this woman astray!
