How To Do Interlining

Interlining has but a single purpose — to add warmth to a garment.  When other results are desired (more body, neat appearance, strength, color or opaqueness) the correct terms to use are interfacing, facing, underlining or lining.

Interlining can be provided in two ways — a separate layer or an insulating-finish (coating) on another layer.

The separate-layer interlining can be sewn to the lining or to the wrong side of the outside fabric before adding the lining.

When interlining is attached to the outside fabric, its lifespan will be related to the garment’s life, instead of to the lining.

Interline with non-woven fleece or with lamb’s wool.  Allow a little extra room in the pattern for added bulk throughout the cutting and construction of the garment.  Use the lining pattern to cut the interlining, but eliminate the center back pleat, following the instructions as follows:

                


           

Hopefully these instructions and diagrams are clear so that you can try interlining a shirt/jacket or similar garment.
