I am sewing a men's shirt pattern that calls for polarfleece. They call for interfacing the collar and placket. Would I really interface the fleece? If so, what kind of interfacing do I use with fleece?

Thanks so much.

Most ready to wear polar fleece isn't interfaced. Personally I think it creates more bulk. If you felt like you had to use it, go for sew in, iron on is not a good choice. It there are buttonholes , I just use a patch of interfacing for each one, and some water soluable on top.

I don't know why sewing patterns still keep this interfacing bit. RTW essentially does not use the stuff, and I certainly do not when making anything of fleece.

Behind the buttonholes--if you are making standard buttonholes--you can glue little squares of reinforcement. Diane is right about putting something on top, too, to keep those buttonholes from looking like frogs' mouths.

Personally, I use Space Tape, which has buttonhole sizes printed right on the surface and whose slightly sticky back keeps buttonholes from creeping and getting weird on difficult fabrics.

I use interfacing behind the facings in my fleece garments(just finished 3 fleece hoodies). I do it to keep them from stretching.

I used interfacing from Pam Erny on a fleece sweater I made on edges of the collar & front facing. Next time I will also interface & serge the edge of the hem. The interfaced portions are so much nicer than just the fleece!

I skip the interfacing on fleece.
