Create a fabulous coat that you will wear from spring’s showers to fall’s turning leaves by adding an easy zip-out lining with this article from Threads #152. This secret layer is quick to sew using ready-quilted fabrics, and it adds a layer of warmth without unflattering bulk. This method of using quilted fabric and bias binding to make the removable lining allows you to extend the wearability of your favorite coat, without demanding difficult pattern alterations. Claire Meldrum tells you how to choose the right pattern, alter your pattern, and then assemble and insert the zip-out lining.
