interfacing a yoke

SewNancy | Posted in General Discussion on

I am making a pleated skirt for my daughter with a fitted yoke.  I am making it out of the leftover tweed from my Chanel jacket which is a silk and loosely woven .  I am using lining for the inside yoke pieces.  Should I interface the outer pieces, the lining or both?

    Most definitely interface the outer layer of the yoke. As for interfacing the lining too, that's up to you. I think you'll have to judge based on the desired stability. Since the tweed is loosely woven, you might want to consider a layer of fusible backed by a layer of sew-in or even two layers of fusible. I'd avoid fusing to lining.....it usually looks and feels terrible!

      Thanks.  It is really nice to get a helpful hand so quickly.
