There are advantages and disadvantages to the various types of interfacing. Learning about interfacing makes it easy to understand your choices. This will help you make a good decision.
Woven interfacing is woven the same way fabric is woven. You will see threads running horizontally and vertically.
Fusible interfacing will have a glazed or spotted look on one side. The side with the spots or glazed look is the fusible side. This is the side that you use an iron. The interfacing will permanently adhere to fabric. Pre wash the fabric before using. This will remove the chemicals that are used in processing. Always test a fusible interfacing on a scrap of the fabric.
Sew-In interfacing has no finishing on either side. It is sewn to the fabric just inside the seam line. None of the stitching will show on the outside of the garment.
