Wrap top pattern
Interfacing or not? Unsure what it is/isn't saying

Subject: Wrap top pattern need help Date: 10/2/13 3:10 PM

Ok this is my first time at using a wrap top pattern Vogue 7876 and using a knit. This pattern, as I see it, does not call for using interfacing. Nothing is noted on the outside of the envelope or on the layout diagram. And nothing stating in the directions to iron interfacing to facing fabric. So far I was good. Then I read the directions and, I'm wondering if it is a mistake, there is a diagram showing the facing being sewn together and they have small dots all over it. The shading key shows that those small dots represent interfacing. However, in different views (C,D,E) the dots are not present. And, the different views still have the same slanted front as views A,B. So, use interfacing or not? Will the slanted pieces pull out of shape after wash and wearing without interfacing? I'm leaning towards not using it. What do you think? I cannot think of one pattern I've used that hasn't called for interfacing. Is this common?

(I don't have this pattern and so far have not found a copy of the instructions online.)

This may just be an error in the illustrations. Often in pattern instructions, they will show the interfacing in place in the step where you sew or iron on the interfacing, with a note saying that they aren't going to show the interfacing again in the remaining steps.

Some questions/observations:
Interfacing is not listed as a required notion on the envelope, so that's one point for "no interfacing".

In the cutting layout for the view you are making, do they show a cutting layout for interfacing? If no, that's another point or indication that there isn't any interfacing.

The pattern piece that appears to be interfaced in the diagrams: How many are you instructed to cut? This should be stated on the pattern piece ("Cut 1" or "Cut 2"). If you are supposed to cut 2, is it possible that they are using self fabric as a lining/facing/"interfacing" piece?

I always trace my patterns so I pulled out the original and only says cut 1. So, I am believing that it is not interfaced. I will press on and see how it all works. Thank you for confirming my assumptions.
