Well, as sure as there’s sunshine today, I’ve decided on my course of action for my tweed coat. Thank you to everyone who left a comment! This isn’t the first coat I’ve tailored, but for some reason I just got stumped about which interfacing route to take.
Anyways, let me tell you how I came to my decision:
I was catching up on my blog reading and clicked through to Pinterest from one of the blogs and, would you believe it, there was this lovely pin on one of Steph C’s boards:
This is an Yves Saint Laurent jacket from the 80’s, and shows you one of the methods of interfacing that I was waffling on. Don’t you just LOVE interior pictures like this?!?!
I’ll be using this method, since it will stand up to years of wear and – if the pics in the linked Threads article (click on the picture above or here) are any indication – will keep its shape for at least 20 years.
Happy sewing, everyone!
