Subject: Tailors Canvas; what is it? Date: 1/21/07 2:49 PM

Hi all,
I'm making a ca 1930's hat and the pattern calls for "Tailors Canvas." AKA interfacing? My question is; is it different than regular interfacing or is it just a term I've never heard before. I know someone out here in PR land knows what it means.
Thanks in advance,
~Connie

It is probably refering to Buckram. You can find it at Joanns, but you may have to ask where they keep it. At my store, it's not with the interfacing but in the Home Dec dept.

WOW, That's some hat Miss Marylynn!
I Googled Tailors Canvas and came up with nothing.
The pattern also calls for "Buckram". I'm just going to go with heavy duty extra firm interfacing. The hat will only be worn once so I'm not to concerned with "sturdiness" at this point. I'm just going to "wing it!"
The pattern is Vogue V8276 and is without a doubt, the most convoluded pattern I've ever worked with. It seems as though they translated it from another language (French I believe) and left out or screwed up a lot of it.
Thank you so much for your reply.
Your hat reminds me of when I was a young girl going to church with my grand parents; there was a lady, Miss Virginia, who wore hats like the one you have on in your picture. Thanks for the sweet memories too!

Perhaps what the pattern is referring to is "hair canvas" which is used in tailoring. It's not as stiff as buckram, but is more substantial than the average interfacing.
Hope this helps.
