Subject: Interfacing to use for stretch velvet

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: Monday, April 11, 04:42:50pm

I am making my daughter a solo dress for the first time. Using stretch velvet and want to know what interfacing do you recommend for securing the heavy crystals? I didn't know if fuseable will work with stretch> or if we need to use heavy weight sew in?
Thank you for your help!

I would say use a different, non-stretch velvet (NT)!Monday, April 11, 05:06:06pm

I always wait for the experts to answer first but I think you need to use the fuseable. I use the light interfacing and it works for me. (NT)doesn't have to be heavy weight.Tuesday, April 12, 05:15:09am

I like the fusible tricot interfacing but you have to be careful when fusing that you don't squish the nap of the fabric. Note that the crystals are generally glued on so wouldn't require any specific interfacing. It is usually the embroidery that requires stabilizers. Most folks don't use stretchy fabric for ID dresses, hence the first comment. (NT)hthTuesday, April 12, 09:47:40pm

interfacing...I always use the stretch velvet as I find the non stretch velvet too heavy, I thought this is what everyone was using these days. (NT)?Saturday, April 16, 09:03:28am
