Sewing Fake Fur: Lining Construction for a Fake Fur Jacket

Video: Threads magazine

Learn the techniques needed to prepare a lining for a fake fur jacket. Kenneth D. King, a Threads contributing editor, shares several tips in this episode of the Smart Sewing: Fake Fur video series.

The basic lining assembly is similar to any jacket or coat lining. However, Kenneth demonstrates a few techniques that make it easier to install the lining when it’s time to do so.

Staystitch the front opening edges and the neckline edge. Then press under the seam allowances. This prepares the lining to be installed by hand using a fell stitch later in the jacket construction sequence.

Kenneth advises choosing a lining for fake fur with some heft, not a thin, fine lining that’s suitable for a dress. The fur’s wrong side can abrade a thinner lining, so a thicker fabric is more durable.
