Interfacing question

Posted by forensicmom (My Page) on

I need some advice. I finished making all the cuts from the wedding gown and am ready to star putting the pieces together as a Baptism gown. The back bodice is supposed to have a strip of interfacing on the edge. I'm assuming it's to reinforce the buttonholes/buttons.

The dress has a sheer organza overlay and a heavy dull satin as the lining. The interfacing would go in between the layers and would be visible from the outside.

Can I omit the interfacing on this because of the fabric or is there something else I can use?

You would interface the inside of the satin, not the outside, so it wouldn't show.

You can also use the selvage of the organza as interfacing.

RE: Interfacing question

Thanks. I didn't think of that. But won't it show on the inside? Some interfacing is quite scratchy.

RE: Interfacing question

Instead of using typical bought interfacing just use some very thin soft white cotton fabric. The gown isn't going to get a lot of wear and tear on it so I don't see using interfacing is really needed.
