Interfacing Comparison Chart

Author: Kylie   Date Posted:22 January 2018 

Finding interfacing in Australia can be one of the most challenging things as a bag maker, especially knowing what the equivalents are when making international patterns.

Interfacing is a slight obsession of mine and I can go on about it for days!!

To save you a few hours though I've popped it all in a handy reference chart. This will provide you with a way of navigating the common international terminology and have confidence that what you can buy here is going to work like it should.

Hope you enjoy, Kylie :) x
