Secure a Coat Lining

Threads magazine - 176 - Dec. 14/ Jan. 2015 Issue

This article from Threads #176 (December 2014/January 2015) by Threads contributor Jacque Goldsmith describes an innovative way to make sure a coat’s lining is secure. She writes: Browsing in a vintage clothing store, I came across a Burberry trench coat with a free-hanging lining anchored to the coat hem by small tabs at the side seams. What an elegant way to prevent fine lining fabric from pulling against heavier coat fabric and shredding! This not only puts less stress on your lining, it also gives the coat hem a softer, more draped look, and allows for more movement. The fabric anchor tabs are stronger than traditional thread tacks and keep the lining from shifting out of position as you move in the coat. All in all, this designer detail improves wearability and durability, and adds a fine touch you’ll want to use in all the coats you sew.
