Would this work basically the same way if you're hemming a shirt? I'm modifying a T-shirt into a croptop for my X-23 cosplay. So, would I just cut off the fabric to a certain point and use the same technique?

Thank you so much for this! :3 will definately be using it for my cosplays......

Minus the interfacing and the machine sewing. I have two dresses to do, and Im hand sewing everything since I still cant figure out how to thread up the bottom of my machine.

Would you use interfacing on a cloak? -.^ Im relatively new to costuming, and mostly self taught.

Sorry to write so late! But yes you can use interfacing on the bottom of a cloak to keep it semi straight. But I would leave it from the top since it won't drape properly. With the sewing machine make sure the bobbin is threaded correctly because that is one issue that a lot of people have with their sewing machines.

Even though I already know how to sew, this is a marvelous tutorial for everyone! FAVS. I don't use interfacing, but now I think I will because it is nicer and more tailored looking :)

Very nice! I've never used interfacing before, because I'm self taught (for only about a year now, so I'm relatively new) and I really need to read up more on the purpose of interfacing.

Nice tutorial!

That is awesome that your teaching your self how to sew! That is a good idea for another tutorial "Interfacing uses and why you need it" :D

Ah, cool, interfacing in the hem! You come up with so many unique uses for interfacing!

However, would you want to use interfacing in the hem of a skirt? I'd think it wouldn't fall quite right, and would lose its swooshy-ness. Which is a very important factor in a skirt, don'tchaknow.

But I can see interfacing working really well in the hem of pants or shirts!

If you do a pencil skirt it works wonders to keep the whole look very tailored. But your right I wouldn't recommend it for circle skirts or skirts made from jersey. Anyways thanks for looking at my tutorial :D

Oh right, I forgot that pencil skirts exist. XD
