Hello!
I'm about to start on V9002 with an unidentified but most likely poly crepe de chine remnant I got at Hancock Fabrics for $3.95/yd. Its for a muslin, and I intend to order some poly crepe de chine from fabric.com for the final version.

Anyway, the pattern calls for 3/8 yd of 18", 20" interfacing. They don't specify if I need the "lightweight" version, but I'm assuming I do. Am I correct in this assumption?
Would that be Pro-Sheer Elegance Light or PRO-SHEER Elegance MEDIUM-weight FUSIBLE?
Also, these are listed as 60", so I don't need as much for this project, right?
I hope someone can share their experience using these.
Many thanks!

Ask Pam. Seriously, send her an email. She is wonderful about this and will lead you in the right direction. I have asked her many times about which interfacing to use with what fabric and on the garment I am making.

And yes, Pam's interfacing is wide! It's so wonderful. NAYY just a happy customer.

I would go with a lightweight interfacing for a crepe de chine. I imagine the interfacing will be used on the neck facings of that pattern? I can't see where else they would require interfacing.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I think I'm going to try the Pellon lightweight for the muslin and the FSS for the final. I'm curious about the difference between the two.
