Vlieseline Press-and-fold 10-25 black - 50m
Vlieseline Press-and-fold is a heavy, fusible tape made from synthetic fibres. Ideal for reinforcing and sewing straight, long strips of fabric, for example for skirt and trouser bands, but also for belts and shoulder straps. Suitable for medium- to heavy-weight fabrics. The punched lines serve as a fold line and also as a stitching line. Also known as 'Waist-Shaper'. It is made from 60% polyester and 40% cellulose and is certified in accordance with the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 label. Available in two widths (10-25-25-10mm and 10-30-30-10mm), in white and black. Supplied per roll of 50 metres.
PROCESSING VLIESELINE PRESS-AND-FOLD
Please note: always try fusible interlining on a test piece first. Cut the Waist-Shaper to size and iron it onto the fabric waistband. Fold the waistband in the middle and pre-iron the upper waistband edge. Sew the waistband to the skirt (or trousers) along the perforated line. Stitch and fold the edge and, if desired, sew the skirt or trouser lining onto the waistband. Then stitch the hemmed waistband through the seam on the right side.
WHICH REINFORCEMENT TO CHOOSE?
We have a huge choice of reinforcements in our webshop: iron-on and sew-in, woven and non-woven, suitable for DIY fashion and for hobby purposes and from both brands and our private label. The most important thing is to choose a reinforcement material that suits the fabric and purpose:
For handmade fashion we have iron-on and sew-in interlining in our range. Cotton wadding and fusible interfacing are provided with an adhesive layer and are permanently attached to the fabric with a hot iron. Ideal for small parts of clothing to give shape or support to the fabric, such as collars and cuffs, or to make them stronger - think buttonholes. They are often also suitable for reinforcing home accessories (pelmets or tiebacks) and fashion accessories (bags or belts). They can also be used to make fabric less see-through (for the bodice of a dress, for instance). Choose smooth, thin reinforcement for lightweight fabrics and firm and thicker for heavier fabrics. For stretch fabric, elastic fusible reinforcement is the best option; for heat-sensitive fabrics (such as leather or faux leather) there is a choice between sew-in interlining and iron-on adhesive reinforcement that can be applied on a low iron setting. With cotton woven interlining, the direction of the thread should be taken into account.
For neat and sharp hems or for strong seams, we have all kinds of iron-on and sew-in tapes in our range, with or without pre-punched folding edge. Ideal for beautiful hems, round and straight seams, skirt and trouser bands or belts.
Batting or wadding is a thick, soft and insulating layer that is applied between two layers of fabric such as quilts or jackets. Can be made of artificial or natural fibres (such as wool, bamboo or cotton). There are thin as well as thick options (quilters speak of low loft and high loft).
For hobby purposes and needlework we have various special types of reinforcement in our webshop. Think of very sturdy reinforcement for making baskets, bags or other large textile objects, for example. For patchwork and quilting there is reinforcement available with a handy printed quilt grid and for embroidery there is embroidery stabiliser. This non-woven material is usually used to temporarily reinforce a delicate or stretchy fabric so that the fabric can be embroidered or appliquéd more easily on the sewing machine. Embroidery stabiliser is available in various options, such as solufleece (water-soluble), stitch-and-tear or vliesofilm (self-adhesive, for small patches that do not fit into an embroidery frame).
