Tips To Prevent

  • Keep your test fusing samples, they are a great reference for future sewing projects.

  • Select fusible interfacing by weight of fashion fabric, the amount of structure the style of garment requires and consider the way the garment will be cleaned.

  • Interfacing is an inner layer to support areas of the garment and the weight and drape must be compatible with the fashion fabric, select the same weight or lighter.

  • Fold fabric after test fusing. If a sharp fold forms a crease in the fashion fabric, try a lighter interfacing. Fabric fused with interfacing needs to be flexible supple and recover from creases.

  • The ironing board needs to be in the correct position if too high, you cannot apply enough pressure. Some domestic presses do not have enough pressure to fuse manufacturers interfacings.

  • When fusing garment pieces begin pressing in the centre of each piece and overlap the area you previously pressed.

  • Heavier fabric and fusible interfacing may take a little longer than 10 seconds to fuse.

  • Always remember if fabric has movement choose an interfacing with stretch to avoid separation and bubbling.

  • Choose the most appropriate colour interfacing as this may change fashion fabric colour. A variety of colours are available white, cream, grey beige, black charcoal and skin tone.

  • Consider the density of cloth a soft, light interfacing fused all over can give depth of colour so that construction seams and inside details are not visible improving the finished appearance.

  • Interfacing the top layer of garment fabric for example an upper collar or an outer cuff of a blouse, to prevent the seam allowances shadowing on the right side.

  • If your fabric is soft or loosely woven to prevent the movement during cutting block fuse and cut the pattern section after fusing.
