The various types of interfaces available have advantages and disadvantages. Knowing the interface before shopping or starting to sew clothes can easily understand your choices and why you choose one interface over another.
Why use an interface?
The interface is used to provide shaping, reinforcement, firmness and support. Collars, cuffs, finishes and plackets are the most common contact areas, but they are far from a use. If there is no interface, the button hole may be torn without a reinforced interface. If there is no interface, the panels, collars and cuffs will become soft and weak, and many creative projects will never happen.
Basic interface selection
The interlining interface has various weights and can be stitched or fusible. The weight is almost always lighter than the fabric you sew, but it should always have the same cleaning and care requirements.
One exception is things like baseball cap bills or fabric plates. The interface is much heavier than fabric to achieve a hard hat cap or dish shape.
Which to use
Although the choice is ultimately a matter of preference, the structure itself makes the final decision on which interface to use.
Before you start using it, be sure to pre-wash the fabric to remove all finishes or chemical coatings before attempting to fuse it with the surface.
Fusible interface: Once the fusible interface is fused, it will increase more rigidity than when standing alone. Not all fabrics can withstand the heat required for fusible connections. Cold welding is possible because it adheres with lower heat setting.
Sewing interface: When sewing vinyl, velvet, beading, sequins and processed fabrics, use the sewing interface.
Very lightweight interface: There are very lightweight interfaces that can replace the breathability and drape of lightweight fabrics, but can increase enough support and shape without making it too strong.
Test your choice
In the store, place a layer of interfaces below the fabric layer of your choice. Test the position of the combination by hand.
At home, if you choose a fusible interface, test it on a scrap of the right size before using the combination in your final project.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions and let the samples cool. Check the fuse and the flatness of the fuse. In addition, please check if the fuser does not penetrate into the fabric.
