Interfacing lycra?


I am making a shirt that is sheer lycra. I want to interface the body
with a fusible without losing the stretch features. The shirt will be
very fitted...no blousing at all. Additionally, the color I need is
red. Is there a fusible that would work? If I cannot find something
with stretch, if I cut the interfacing on the bias would that work?

Sounds like interlining rather than interfacing would be the way to go here.

Dear Cheryl,
Interfacing comes in black, white and natural. If the garment is to be sheer, you could use red organza or netting for the interfacing, or even a piece of red lace...

Well, you've gotten some excellent suggestions but it might be a lot easier to find a sleek red lycra tank-style body suit to wear under the sheer shirt.

What about using the same fabric as a sew-in interfacing/self lining? Provided of course you have extra to use. That way you keep the stretch and have an exact color match.

Why would you interface Lycra, especially with a fusible? You would likely lose the stretch factor. If you just want to cover private body parts, how about an attached slip or lining instead in a flesh color or red?

go to trimfabric.com. Look in their clearance(?) area. I think that's where I found it. They had plenty of red fusible knit interfacing. AK
