MODULE 1 • Jacket Interfacing

Step Description
1 For this lesson we will use the jacket created in our Jacket Draft & Drape lesson. We will begin this lesson by planning the jacket’s interfacing pieces.
Consider these 5 points when choosing an interfacing:1. Softly Tailored/Structured

  • overall look of your jacket
  • softly tailored jacket
  • more structured jacket

Decide on the overall look of your jacket. You may wish to create a softly tailored jacket or a more structured jacket. Here we will plan for a softly tailored jacket.

2 2. Woven fusible hair canvas or woven non-fusible mid-weight interfacing.

  • tailored/structured jacket look = hair canvas
  • softly tailored jacket look = mid-weight interfacing

Select the interfacing that best suits the look and the type of fashion fabric that you have chosen. For example, if you are going for a tailored, more structured look you may wish to choose a woven fusible hair canvas. If you are going for a softer look then you might choose a woven non-fusible mid-weight interfacing.

3 3.Interfacing – compatible with fashion fabric

  • always test various types of interfacing
  • interfacing must be compatible with fashion fabric
  • don’t choose interfacing heavier than your fashion fabric

Always test various types of interfacing before you make your final selection, to be sure that the final choice is compatible with your choice of fashion fabric. You wouldn’t choose an interfacing that is heavier than your fashion fabric since it might be too overpowering for the overall look of the jacket.
