Can anyone tell me what exactly is nylon fusible knit? I've seen in a vogue pattern (2988) ,the jacket ,that this is used for interfacing. There is no mention of lining. I'm a bit confused about it. Also are Vogue patterns much more difficult than the other main ones? I've always sewn Burda WOF , McCalls and Butterick before.
Many thanks.

I see yardages for lining right under the yardages for the fusible knit interfacing. Also, the pattern description says that the jacket is lined.

Although Vogue is recommending nylon fusible knit interfacing, I think you could use other types of fusible knit interfacing as long as they are fairly light in weight.

Ugh, another Vogue pattern that is "fully interfaced". They want you to fuse interfacing to the entire jacket, every piece! Several of my newer Vogue jacket patterns suggest the same fusing treatment. I'm not sure what they are thinking but I know I don't like it. Why take a nice fabric and glue nylon all over it! If you are using fabric for the jacket that has a bit of body on its own then you won't need to interface the entire jacket, just the usual areas that an sewing book will tell you about. Only the wimpiest, and IMHO inappropriate, fabrics will need full support.

I like the Palmer/Pletsch products but there are many other just as good interfacings on the market. I think the "Light" would be what Vogue is suggesting and you can read about that here and get an idea of what it is.

RE: The relative difficulty of Vogue Patterns--

If you can make sense of the directions in Burda WOF, Most Vogue patterns ought to be a cakewalk.

Vogue does have several more complicated patterns, with more details and tailoring than Butterick or McCalls but so does Burda WOF.

Being in the UK, you have access to many of the Vilene products we dont see in other countries.
Sew Essential
has two pages of the Vilene products listed by product number. BWOF references these Vilene products in their sewing Instructions.

Also, I think it is in the July 07 BWOF, there is a list of the products and their uses.

Zetor, try Gill Arnold in Birmingham for all sorts of specialist and hard to find interfacings. Or, if you can get to Giesse Scampoli in Birmingham, Dani has a good selection of interfacings and a fabulous range of great Italian fabrics all at wonderful prices. He's very helpful and knowledgable about the fabrics he sells - definitely worth a visit for you and your credit card

Thankyou all for your advice. You're a great bunch! Yes, I'll check out those sites and the one in Birmingham, unfortunately I'm in Co. Durham so it's not very convenient to do personal shopping there, but online will be good. Thankyou ChrisK.
