If you like your corset panels sewn as wrinkle free and fuss-free as possible then you're going to love Heat & Bond Lite. I learned about this product from fellow corsetiere Amber Welch of Lovely Rat's Corsetry a few years ago. It is a game changer when it comes to professional grade corsetry creations.
The Heat & Bond Lite is an iron-on, sewable, double-sided adhesive. It is perfect for fusing satin to coutil or other foundation fabrics. If you plan to make a single layer corset or one with a floating layer the Heat & Bond Lite does all the bonding without any additional weight or stiffness. Also, its easy to remove in case you make a mistake. You can order a bolt of it online or purchase it by the yard at a fabric store. There is also heat n bond ultra that has more adhesive, but the ultra gums up your needles so choose wisely.
When I begin fabric preparation my first step is to iron out the fashion fabric that will be fused to the coutil with the Heat & Bond Lite. I love the fact that the Heat & Bond Lite has a paper back so I can trace my panels onto the adhesive cut then save myself tons of fabric later on. It does not have to be on grain so you can just cut where ever it is sticky.
