I am using the lightest interfacing for fabrics and heavy stabilizer for embroidery,80 gms. (NT).Sunday, January 10, 06:27:32pm

Pellon - actually I wanted to know how to make the skirt stiff - what is it that the dressmakers use to ensure the skirt retains its shape? (NT)Sewing momMonday, January 11, 04:11:10am

I've used Pellon 520 Deco Fuse and found it to be about the same thickness at the Vilene used by BNDM. You can get it on Amazon. (NT)DMMonday, January 11, 08:11:01pm

Vilene is the product used by the bndms, but it is not available for retail purchase in the US. I have tried contacting Pellon directly (it is a Pellon product) but they will only sell it if you have a particular business license/resale license; in other words, they only sell to manufacturers in the US - I don't know why...Monday, January 11, 09:25:28pm

Have you tried ebay? Many UK sellers as it is easily available? I but from local dressmaking supplies and can get same weight as in a Siopa Rince I took apart over the summer (NT)Jessica HeppleWednesday, January 13, 10:20:04am

Thank you to all who responded - Vilene is actually sold by Irish Threads in Canada. (NT)Sewing momSunday, January 17, 09:12:05am
