What effect does interlining have on the garment?


Interlining is the skeleton of the entire garment, and is concerned with the overall shape of the garment. Different linings have different roles in different parts of the garment.

What is interlining

Interlining is a woven fabric, knitted fabric and non-woven fabric as the base fabric, using (or not using) thermoplastic polymer compounds, special finishing process by special machinery, used for clothing or shoes and hats, such as the inner layer of the role of reinforcement, bracing, etc., and fabric bonding (or non-bonding) of clothing accessories.


Impact on clothing

Make the garment get a good shape

Plays the role of a skeleton. Without affecting the feel and style of the fabric, the garment can be made flat or achieve the desired shape with the help of the stiffness and elasticity of the lining.

Improve the anti-wrinkle ability and strength of the garment

For thin fabric garments, bonded lining is used at the collar and barge parts, as well as at the placket and front, which can make the garment flat and wrinkle-resistant. Protects and secures the fabric from overstretching and abrasion by adding an extra layer of lining at the provinces and seams, increasing wearability.

Make the garment folded edge clear and straight and beautiful

The lining is used at the folds of the garment, such as the stops, cuffs, sleeve slits, hem and slits, to make the folds straighter and more distinct and the garment more beautiful.

Keep the shape and size of the garment stable

Some parts of the cut garment pieces that have curved shapes and tilted silk locks, such as collar nests and sleeve holes, can ensure stable garment structure and size; there are also some parts that are easily deformed by stretching during wear, such as pockets and buttonholes, which can be made less susceptible to stretching and deformation, making the garment form stable and beautiful.

Reduce the difficulty of operation

Thin and soft fabrics encountered in the sewing process will improve the gripability of the fabric because of the presence of the lining.


Matching relationship between interlining performance and fabric performance

1, the thickness of the fabric and the thickness of the interlining is directly proportional to each other. Clothing fabric is relatively thick, the choice of interlining   is also relatively thick, the main choice of spun interlining for more; on the contrary, the clothing fabric is thin, the choice of interlining  is also relatively thin. Thick fabric, lining of the glue point becomes larger, the distance between the glue point increases, but also to ensure the bonding effect and softness. Thin fabric backing becomes thinner, the glue point becomes smaller, the density increases to ensure better bonding effect, impermeable glue and softness.

2, fabric elasticity and lining elasticity is directly proportional to each other. Stretch fabric corresponding to the use of stretch lining, so as to protect the original characteristics of the fabric.

A good skin should match a good core. A garment appearance effect is inseparable from the lining, then a good garment and a good lining is also inseparable, if the lining is the skeleton, then a good lining fabric is the essence of the garment.
