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?
