General Directions:

  1. Pin pattern piece to Tailor's Elite following grain line arrows and cut. Trim seam allowances to 1/8". Place rough fusible side of Tailor's Elite against wrong side of fabric. Pin, then steam-bast along edges with tip of iron. Remove pins.
  2. Cover with damp press cloth. Set iron on silk/wool setting. Use a gliding motion to iron interfacing into place. Apply light pressure when ironing. Steam press on right side. Let fabric cool, then check bond. Repeat steps if needed.

Tips:

  • Use the damp press cloth as a temperature and timing guide. After 10-15 seconds, press cloth should be dry. If not, raise iron temperature or hold iron in place a few seconds longer.
