Fusing the interfacing to the wool coat fabric
I have to admit that fusing interfacing is not my favorite job. Fusing the whole front is very tedious. I used a fusiknit interfacing for the front pieces and the hems of the sleeves and the back pieces. I also fused the shoulder seam on the back panels. For the collar and the front facing’s and the pocket welts I used an iron on hair canvas to give the fabric some crispness in those areas. The iron has to be placed on top of the press cloth which is on top of the fusible interfacing, on top of the fabric and then held for a slow count of 10 then you pick up the iron, no sliding, and put it down a few inches away and do it again. I use the cotton setting on my iron.
Bust darts for the wool coat.
For two fronts, the facing, the collar, the welts and hems, this is a long day.
