This is a light-weight, non-woven, sew-in interfacing. It is fine and a little ‘crisp’, and adds more stability to collars, cuffs, waistbands, necklines and pockets when it isn’t appropriate to use iron-on interfacing. This weight is perfect for light - medium weight fabrics. It is machine washable (up to 60C) and dry cleanable.
The most popular use for Vilene Light is to trace precious sewing patterns. See the images for our transparency test. As you can see, the text, lines and markings are quite distinct. If you hate tracing (like me ;-)), and struggle seeing through other interfacing, then this is worth trying.
It can also work double time and be your initial ‘toile’/muslin to assist with any preliminary adjustments. Once you have traced and cut out your pattern, you can baste (by hand or machine) the Vilene light pattern pieces together to check fit. It is a great opportunity to also check dart size and position. Your traced pattern can then be easily rolled or folded for storage. The interfacing will become creased if folded, but simply iron the Vilene light to eliminate these.
NOTE: Your Vilene Light is sent folded and may have crease marks upon arrival. You just need to run the iron over the interfacing and you are ready to go. Use a medium setting.
