Waistband Interfacing on BM Satin Skirt?
I am sewing a bridesmaid skirt of matte satin. It is a heavier satin and so far is working up nicely with the underlining. (Yup, matches the top I wrote about a few weeks ago, which I have yet to sew since I’m waiting for the muslin to be returned.)
However, I just don’t know what to use for the waistband interfacing. When I purchased the fabric, I also bought some sew-in pellon interfacing, which the woman in the interfacing department recommended, though I don’t think she knew what to recommend really. I thought it felt stiff then – and now that I’m ready to sew the waistband, I find I still feel it is too stiff. (I cut a length, folded it, and put it between some folded satin.) I pulled out my supply of interfacing and found some pattern-ease and it is a slightly lighter weight. I like how it feels in between the folded satin. Can I substitute this pattern-ease for interfacing? Will it shrink or do anything that would warrant NOT using it?
I’m trying to make this a quality garment and don’t want to use the wrong thing!
I’ll be traveling tomorrow to PA for the bridal shower, but will have access to the internet, so will look for responses.
