I have been reading a lot on blogs about interfacing. Its time for my 2 cents.
I have always used the iron on interfacing. It always made me nervous; it also seemed either too heavy or too thin for the fabric in question. I am lucky, I never had an accident with it nor has it seemed to have shrunk.
However, after everything I have been reading lately, I went out and bought some sew in interfacing. I must say, I quite enjoyed using this on the brown leaf dress: both collar and front piece are interfaced. I felt like I had more control over what was happening rather than just holding my breath and wishing for good things which is what I would do with the iron in interfacing.
So, yes I am a convert.
