- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Interfacing question, anyone?
I am working on a vintage pattern that has a tie that is sewn between the bodice neck and the facing and then the tie ends knot at the neck v. It called for sew-in interfacing (yeah, right) and I used light weight fusible called Fusi-form, which seems too stiff. I am using broadcloth for the ties. My gut is to skip interfacing. What has happened is it is too stiff to baste around the curve of the neckline to be basted into place. Any suggestions?
