Replace a Coat Lining

Spruce up your outerwear with designer details
Threads #188, Dec. 2016/Jan. 2017

Receive step-by-step guidance for replacing a coat lining and for adding stylish, functional details in the process.

Say you have a beautiful coat that you absolutely love but the lining is worn, perhaps even ripped, while the outer fabric is still in great condition. Instead of donating or throwing away the coat, consider replacing the lining. This refreshes a coat’s appearance, restores its proper fit and hang, and extends its life. You can use the original lining as the pattern, so there’s no complicated drafting required. You’ll also learn many ready-to-wear tricks while removing the old lining.

This article is from Threads #188 (Dec. 2016/Jan. 2017). See the full, step-by-step method in the PDF below. Steps include: assessing the old lining, removing and preparing the lining pieces, making the pattern, sewing the lining and then installing it.
