So I got it into my head that I'm going to make ties for the male members of my wedding party. I've never made ties, so I looked at several patterns online and all of them call for lightweight fusible interfacing. One even calls for heavyweight sew-in interfacing.
Joann's had a fabric sale on the Waverly brand recently. I looked and LOVED their patterns so I bought a crapload of stuff. 100% cotton, all the same, right? It's not - it's all home decor fabric, much stiffer than I expected. I still love the way the patterns look, so I'm still planning to go through with it and make the ties. But will I really need the interfacing if the fabric is already stiff and not soft/drapey to begin with?
Any tie-making tips for a sewing n00b like me?
