Is there such a thing as nude interfacing?

I want to make my latest jacket again with some minor changes. This time I want to use an ivory stretch cotton eyelet that has lots of body and line it with a nude stretch cotton shirting. My only problem is that if I use white interfacing, it will show through. giving the interfaced areas a different color. I desperately want to avoid that. It seems that my only solution is to interline it and put the interfacing on that, but what interlining could I use that would have the stretch of the two other fabrics. AND I want this to be a lightweight summer jacket and interlining would make it just that much heavier and warmer. The perfect solution would be a nude colored fusible knit interfacing. Is this possible. I did a web search without any usable results.

what about using organza in the proper color as a sew-in interfacing rather than using a white fusible that will show through?

Organza doesn't have any stretch.

I'm confused -- you want to use eyelet for a structured jacket and not have the inner workings of the jacket show? What are you going to do about the sleeve heads? Won't the facing conflict with the eyelet and show no matter what you do? See, I just don't understand.

There must be a source for nude interfacing.....Try Spandex House, they have every type of stretch fabric known to man. If you don't find what you want on the website, call them.

Sew Exciting that many rave about has ivory although she is out at the moment.

Greenberg Hammer has a selection or two in brown and ivory.

Black and Sons seems to carry all the colors hopefully in the weight that you want.

Kathi, this jacket won't be quite so structured. It'll be a light weight summer jacket without all the block fusing. I'm going to use a short fun sleeve, maybe with some gathers and patch pockets and a much smaller shoulder pad. It will also be shorter and a closer fit than my last one. More like a lined blouse than a structured jacket.

Thank you Liz for those links. I'll call them tomorrow to see if any of them have what I need.

I really like the one that Pam at Sew Exciting carries. It is very sheer. It might be worth the wait.

I have also purchased a similar but heavier fusi-knit in nude from Nancy's Notions.

Sherril,

I have seen nude fusible interfacing. I bought some at Sally's Fabrics in the Fox Hills Mall. It was a while ago, and the stuff they had was pretty dark, but maybe they could tell you their source. They don't have a website, but their number is (310) 390-8556. I also remember seeing an episode of Susan Khalje's show where her guest talked about the benefits of using nude interfacing, but for the life of me I can't anything on that show.

Could you try tea dying some interfacing? It would take some experimentation.

If you don't mind sew in I have seen fabric used to make dolls used for interfacing and to make seams and pockets less noticeable with white or sheer fabrics . It comes in a wide range of skin tones and I think some is light weight with a little stretch. I have not tried it or used it but it might be worth looking into.
