This particular one I showed actually has a knit rib waistband so there wouldn’t be any fusible. But you’re right. If this were a traditional hem or had a hem facing, it absolutely would get a bit of interfacing.

As far as fusing sleeves, the same applies to the hem -the style I showed was for sleeves with a rib knit cuff.

For some reason, fusible in sleeve caps has become popular or trendy. I don’t know why that is or where it started. I don’t think it is a bad thing but again, it is a case by case basis. I have never done this but could see doing it in a heavier coat.

What about the concept of fusing all hems (read it in other posts/comments on your blog)?
Thanks so much, again!

This post is really helping me! Indeed I didn’t specify the closure but it will definitely consist of buttons. Can’t wait to put the fusing map into practice (fabric & interfacing shopping on Monday). Wish me luck!

Worked with various forms of interfacing, but rarely fusing. I know this is a off-topic, but I would love a post on selecting good fusing that doesn’t bubble or ripple as the glue warps over time.

I found a wonderful print twill suitable for a casual zip up vest. This is perfect for what I want to do for the offspring, plus put in two inside zip pockets. Thanks, Kathleen.
