Was mentioned of PR that french fuse was used on princess seams to elimate waves or puckering. Is there another product that could be used as don't know if this item is available locally.

Thank you

I buy my French Fuse from Judy Kessinger, creator of the FitNice Sew Slim master patterns--which I also highly recommend. She has sales on it every so often. Her website is here.

I've never seen French Fuse in the stores here either, though I'm not sure I ever looked.

I think another name is Fusi-knit.

There are new ultra-light versions which I use for almost everything.

Thank you all for the info on French Fuse alternative. Going to first check JoAnn's (only fabric store that sells fashion fabric anywhere near me) and then hit the internet if that doesn't work. Don't think I'll have luck, but will try.
