If your dress calls for interfacing, perhaps inside a collar or a front band, here are a few tips for working with

If you’re using fusible interfacing, make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions to ensure proper bonding to
your fabric. Interfacing that’s not properly adhered may bubble and come loose after a few washings/cleanings.

Always test the interfacing first on a scrap of your fabric before applying it to your garment pieces. This way, you'll be
able to determine if the interfacing will provide your fabric with the degree of body and stiffness you want and if the
time and temperature are correct for proper bonding.

Feel free to use different kinds of interfacing for the different parts of you garment – perhaps using a heavier
interfacing for a collar and a lighter interfacing for a front band.

Consider using a non-fusible interfacing. Fusible interfacings are convenient, but they tend to stiffen fabric, which is a
look and feel you may not always want. Plus, fusible interfacing isn't appropriate for some fabrics, such as fabrics that
are highly textured, napped fabrics like velvet, fabrics that can’t take the heat of an iron like metallics, vinyl, beaded or
sequined fabrics, and open-weave fabrics like lace or meshes.
