Underneath It All

with Linda Lee

  • For the dress
  • I used a linen blend. pink lining. For the coat
  • I used a loose woven tweed fabric. The coat material was difficult because the weave was so loose. I used fused iron on interfacing to give it body and hold it together better. I serged the edges and added pockets. I changed the front buttons to overlapping buttons vs what the pattern had. The pattern called for 4 buttons with a loop to close them.

Q&A with lucillei1300777

FromHeadToFoot asked:
What brand and type of iron on interfacing did you use? Did it do everything you wanted and expected?
lucillei1300777 answered:
Hi, I bought a better iron than I had previously. I used a Rowenta iron. I didn't use an interfacing because I lined it with a pink acetate lining instead. I usually line my dresses to have a more expensive look. Hope this helps! The coat material was a loose woven that was falling apart as you cut it, so I used an iron on fusible interfacing to keep it together. I lined it with a pink acetate lining.
