I. INTERLINING DEFINED:

Interlining is a trim used in almost every garment. It is a layer of knitted, woven or non-woven fabric between the fabrics of the garment. It prepares its form, reinforces and prevents stretching. Even though interlining is an invisible part of a garment’s interior, its construction and the fusion process and shell fabric influence sewability, durability, appearance and mechanical properties of the garment. Interlining is important in building shape into detail areas such as the front of coats, collars, lapels, cuffs and pocket flaps. It stabilises and reinforces areas subject to extra wear and stress like necklines, facings, patch pockets, waistbands, plackets and buttonholes.

CATEGORIES:

According to application, interlining is divided into two categories, fusible and non-fusible

  1. Non – fusibleinterlining: Non-fusible interlining is an additional layer inserted between the outer fabric and regular lining of a garment without chemical bonding.
  2. Fusibleinterlining: Interlining which uses a thermoplastic resin to attach the face fabric is known as an adhesive or fusible interlining. Most of fusible interlinings fuse with Rotary Fusing Press Machine, in some cases depend on fabric characteristics fusible interlining should used with steam or dry iron for better results.

Why use interlining?

• Give shape to the garment
• Maintain or improve the handfeel
• Provide reinforcement
• Control dimensional change
• Reduce wrinkling / puckering
• Enhance handling and sewing
