Make a Bias-Cut Half Lining for a Jacket

Article Image

Sometimes the most valuable garment-construction techniques have the most obscure sources. Many highly structured jackets are only half lined through the back. A half lining protects the fashion fabric from the wear and tear of upper back movement and prevents the shape of interior construction details from showing through an otherwise unlined jacket. It is also a particularly good solution for attractively concealing a jacket’s inner workings when a full back lining would create too much bulk, weight, or warmth.

This half-lining method is different from those you may be familiar with. It employs two squares of lining fabric folded diagonally, creating triangles on the bias, rather than one straight-grain lining piece. Get all the details to make this unique lining from Louise Cutting in this article from Threads #157, Oct./Nov. 2011.

    Hi ssquilter,

    The file seems to be opening fine on my end. Please make sure your Adobe plugins are up-to-date. Give it a try and let us know if you are still experiencing problems.

    Thanks!

    None of the downloads are working for me today. I get this message: Oops! We're sorry, but we can't seem to find the page you are looking for.
