If you’ve ever found yourself swearing at your machine trying to finish the neckline of a silk garment, here’s a tip for you. Use lightweight interfacing to help the neckline hold its shape and add strength to keep things looking good wear after wear, extending the life of your garment. This is one of my favorite tips for working on necklines with garments that are made from delicate fabrics such as silk crepe de chine or silk chiffon, which is what I am using in this tutorial.
▲ a rotary cutter, mat and ruler
▲ ultra-lightweight woven fusible interfacing
▲ an iron [I like to use my mini-iron for this but any iron will work]
▲ the fabric piece you will be interfacing
▲ your fusible bias strips
▲ an old ironing board cover or scrap fabric [you don't want to ruin your nice cover!]
