I write this blog post with a dog draped across the back of my neck! Either Ella loves me very much indeed, or she has half an eye on the dinner plate with leftovers to my side.
I paused in my most recent sewing project to consider the application of interfacing. Above is a photo of a front waistband piece with fusible interfacing applied to the wrong side of the fabric. Somewhere in my sewing career, I learnt to cut the interfacing smaller than the main piece – and this has been a great piece of advice.
- It stops the interfacing from adding bulk to seam lines.
- It makes the interfacing much more manageable to apply, no edges overlapping.
- You don’t have to worry about glue getting stuck to your ironing board cover.
A small tip, but a tip worth sharing. Does anyone else have interfacing advice? Who else has an animal draped across their body?
