Hi, I’m a bit new to sewing and am a little confused by the interfacing stuff…
I was planning to make a wool coat some time in the future out of wool blend suiting. I was wondering what areas I should interface as the fabric is a little floppy (I was thinking around the collar and closure area, cuffs, and perhaps the front and back ‘bodice’)
Also, as I am not too keen on fusible interfacing, I was wondering what good alternatives there were. I was considering using silk organza (somehow cheaper than the rest of the interfacings available…), would this work? How would I insert nonfusible interfacing? Would I have to pad-stitch it or something?
Also,I bought some armoweft interfacing some time ago and prewashed it and now it is flaking lots of glue. Is this normal?

I understood that the first US BurdaStyle quarterly issue came with some code to access…
How many replies does this post need to be implimented? This is an awesome idea!
Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
