Hello everyone. I am making a top from a linen blend fabric that frays very badly and stretches. I am thinking of adding a strip of interfacing at the hemline so the bottom of the garment won’t get bigger and wavy. If I make a 1″ hem, should I fuse a 2″ strip of interfacing one inch from the cut edge? That way, when I hem there will be only one layer of interfacing. Also, I wonder if 2″ is too wide. Opinions please.
Also, can anyone give hints on working with fabrics that fray before you can stitch anything together?
Thanks to all for your help.
