Need sewing advise. I added Pellon fusible non-woven interfacing to the front and back of an evening bolero jacket (per the pattern instructions) and I do not like the stiffness. Does anyone know how to remove the fused interfacing?
I've been through this & it's not fun... & the truth is, sometimes it's impossible to remove it, but if you want to give it a try, what you do is take a piece of light colored 100% cotton fabric & lay it over the interfacing, then just iron the cotton it until the interfacing underneath it warms up enough to get a corner pulled up, then slowly keep warming up the interfacing & pulling it up while it's warm (or hot)... Depending on how well you've fused it & how long it's been sitting will decide if it will or won't come away from the fabric. But remember this Pellon is MADE to be washed, dried & dry-cleaned without coming up...
* You could also e-mail the Pellon company & ask them.
You've probably used an interfacing that was just a wee bit thicker than was needed for that particular fabric. I've done this many times when I've not had the interfacing I needed, but now, I recently stocked up on different kinds when it was 50% off, so hopefully this won't happen to me again. I personally like the knitted interfacing, the one for knits because it moves & bends a little when you do.
