A tailor naturally uses tailors chalk. Like on the picture below. This tailor has just marked his jacket front. After this interlining is applied. That will be sewn on by hand or fused to the fabric with the iron.
You can also see a sewing tape around his neck. This is a yellow tape and it looks like the professional quality we sell as well. The advantage of yellow is that it is an active colour and easy to spot.
Tailors products on offer: Day of the tailor
An oldfashioned tailor hand sews his horsehair or woollen haircloth to the jacfket front. Therefore you will find these interlinings in the sale Thin woollen haircloth interlining and the washable horsehair interlining. Both are sewn in. And for on the horsehair cloth the thin fusible volume interlining is quite suitable. You put a little volume on the shoulder of the jacket which gives you a nicely filled jacket front. It will also increase the crips look of the jacket. This volume fleece has stitches through the length of the interfacing just like Vilene H410. The idea of these threads is that the length of the fabric does not change when waring it
