I'm getting ready to make a wool coat. Has anyone here used fusible hair canvas? Should I get a certain kind/brand? Where can I buy it? Thanks.

Check out www.fashionsewingsupply.com, I love their interfacings. I bought 3 specific ones I needed and also got the swatch set. It's great because besides having samples, they are actually large enough to use in areas like collars and cuffs! Here's a link to her fusible hair canvas

Hope this helps.

Is there a particular reason you want fusible? Normally, in a tailored wool coat, you'd use sew-in hair canvas.

In any case, Pam at Fashion Sewing Supply will be happy to answer any questions you have about interfacings for particular applications.

I'm a little scared of sew-in interfacing when it comes to tailored garments. I have a book that details all the hand stitching involved and it looks so complicated.

It's boring, but not complicated, really! Give it a try!
