All my tailoring methods for womens jackets use regular interfacing. Does anyone know of publications with methods using iron-on interfacings? thanks

      *There's a video by Nancy Zieman (you can rent it from Nancy's Notions video club) called "New talk in tailoring," which is all about using fusible interfacings and fleece in tailoring. THough I don't do any tailoring (the video was a freebie rental when I joined the club) I found it interesting and quite informative.

        *Some good books are: "Easy, Easier, Easiest Tailoring" by Palmer & Pletsch. Nancy Zieman has a booklet available on her website called "New Talk in Tailoring", a companion to the aforementioned video. "Best of Sewing with Nancy", by Nancy Zieman, has a good tailoring section where she recommends specific methods for utilizing fusibles. I also like Mary Ellen Flury. She has a great booklet on tailoring. You can access Nancy Zieman's "New Talk in Tailoring" video and booklet information @ http://www.nancysnotions.com; Mary Ellen Flury @ http://www.sewnet.com, click on Company Pages.

            *You can rent Mary Ellen Flury's video entitled: Tailoring Ladies' Jackets at Nancy's Notions Video Rental club. Nancy's website is: www.nancysnotions.com I highly recommend it! Also check out the newest couture fusibles from HTC-Handler Corporation (or something like that). Think they have a website, but the URL escapes me right now. Interfacing names: Satin Weave, Flex Weave, Textured Weft. Check out the tried & true Armo-Weft, Whisper Weft, Fusi-Knit, SoftKnit, & Touch o' Gold. As you can see, I prefer the HTC stuff to Pellon (yuck!).
