This tip was given to me on Sewing World, when I was looking for a solution to my tees catching on my high hip as I was continuously tugging at the back hem.

iJust iron on fusible knit interfacing to the back area from waist level to top of hem allowance, on tees already made. Or iron on the interfacing before sewing side seams.

This method helps and also works on my terry hoodies, and although it can alter the drape slightly it is way better than constantly tugging at the fabric.

Thank you for the tip. I canít wait to try it. My problem isnít a high hip, but a rather rotund rump. I was toying with the idea of sewing linings into my tees and tunics, or perhaps making tunic length camisoles, but what a bother and too hot for the summer. Yours seems a much quicker and easier solution.

Thanks Barbara, I'll pass this tip on.

I think you are right SewVeryTall it is probably because the knit interfacing is a bit slippery.

I have a friend who has the same problem...do you know why this works? Is it because the interfacing makes the fabric stiffer or slippery or...?
