Stiffener for shoulder area of jackets
I was watching a speed tailoring video by an English girl called Terry Fox. She had some very interesting tips for stiffening the shoulder area of a tailored jacket. She calls it a plastron, which is fixed with a fusible interfacing to hold it in place. Does anyone know where I could purchase this (plastron) stiff fabric from?
She also used an interesting technique around the arm scye (sp?) this involved putting a fleece type fabric and trimming it so it makes the shoulder seam sit up a bit.
I only watched the video quickly, so can’t remember the exact details, but can anybody enlighten me more about these techniques please?
