On fusing: A friend of mine fuses a long strip of fusible interfacing down the trouser crease lines to help keep the crease. However, I don't think she is ironworking shaped creases into her trousers as taught on this forum.
I have not tested this, but if I wanted to fuse the crease, I would ironwork shrinking/stretching first the center lines as needed for fitting the anatomy. Then I would press out any creases that resulted from the iron work on a narrow surface. Then on same narrow surface, I would press on the fusible strip to wrong side. Then I would put in the final crease on face of cloth. The fusible should be lighter in weight than the cloth.

The problem is known since the crease came into exist and 1957 the problem was solved. Also the reason why a crease don’t last. It is completely out of a Tailors hand when the crease don’t last in certain fabrics.
The article is in German, whoever wants to translate it... it explains the whole matter what is going on with the crease in the fabric.
The one who speaks German has a clear advantage in his tailor life.

Don't use a lot of soap, it could shine through and make stains.
ALWAYS test on a swatch!
