I treated myself to some of this armhole reinforcement tape recently. Only one problem. I’ve never used it before!
I’ve draped it on the outside of my make, so that you can scrutinise. I take it I can use around necklines, too. I’m not going to be arrested and thrown in the Crimes Against Sewing Cell, am I? (Wibble, tremble…)
Have you ever used this type of tape before? Any recommendations on usage? I assume you fuse on the seam line, sewn edge on the seam line, fusible bias inside the wrong side of the bodice? Let me know if assumptions are wrong!
I bought this from English Couture, which is where I always buy my fusible interfacing. They’ve updated their website so that it’s much easier to navigate. I’d love to attend one of their courses, but they tend to be during the midweek day when I’m at work. Does your need to earn a living get in the way of your sewing? And with no realistic retirement plans in sight for most of my generation, will this ever change? And what does that say for the future of the ‘hobby’ concept? Will hobbies become more or less important? Gargh, my brain’s about to explode!
