Hi there,
Is there a difference between Fusible Tricot and Fusible Bias
Interfacing? I couldn't find any helpful informaiton on line.

I am finishing up a dress made of ponte and I need to interface the facings and was going to interface the zipper. What should I use. I bought some fusible tricot because I thought that was the correct choice but I saw something on line that it best for cuffs and collars.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Fusible Tricot interfacing ... I use it for everything from giving the fabric more stability to mending tears. Bought my 'stash' years ago in white, beige and black.

Cannot comment on the bias type, never used it.

I like fusible tricot interfacing, but I've never heard of fusible bias interfacing.

I love fusible tricot interfacing. I cut my own bias strips out of it for shoulder stay tape on knits. It will be perfect to stabilize your zipper.
I like to use the bias because the lengthwise is totally stable and crosswise is very stretchy.
I've also used it stabilize zippers in spandex dancewear.

I think you could use your fusible tricot for your needs. I have not heard of fusible bias interfacing, but do have some fusible bias tape that can be used instead of strips of interfacing. Good for zipper edges and much more.

Knits do not have a bias, only woven fabrics. You can use tricot or for a woven you can use Sheer Elegance on the Fashion Sewing Supply
Pam recommends the Sheer Elegance for wovens.
The tricot is perfect for Ponte.
