Interfacings and interlinings are some of the most useful products to have in your sewing room. Vlieseline offer a vast range of products which can add shape and structure to your fabric but there are so many choose from so how do you know which you need for your project?
First off, let’s talk about Vlieseline. If you’re based in Europe and have been sewing for a while you’ll probably be familiar with the brand Vilene. Vilene became Vlieseline in the summer of 2016, different name, but the products are all the same and of exceptional quality. For more than 60 years Vilene (now Vlieseline) has been the essential interlining for all kinds of applications. Vlieseline products are the most famous and prestigious interlinings for those with a passion for sewing, for studios and for professional tailors/dressmakers!

Alongside the top quality fashion range which includes iron-on, sew-in and woven the range also includes a comprehensive range of tapes to take your dressmaking to the next level. The Creative Range is the perfect range of stabilisers for all sorts of projects including patchwork, bags, home decoration, or accessories.
Did you know that Vlieseline also offer a great range of waddings/ battings? Suitable for projects that need a little volume of padding, there are also some flame retardant choices, perfect to offer peace of mind for baby projects.

Vlieseline/ Vilene & Pellon Equivalent products
Isn’t it annoying when you find the perfect project online, only to discover you don’t recognise the suggested stability option? If you’re based in the USA you’re probably familiar with Pellon, and here in Europe and Australia the most popular brand is Vlieseline. We’ve provided Pellon suggestions for Vlieseline products where possible, although we always recommend testing an interlining on scrap fabric first to make sure you’re happy with the result.
