Another lining/inner-lining question
The more I learn about sewing, I find the less I really know. I have a lovely piece of rayon that I want to make into a skirt for my DIL, who has to step up her wardrobe a bit next fall as she will be a first time high school principal as opposed to a classroom teacher. (I had to get that plug for her in there because we are all so proud of her.;)) ) I will also be making a solid color separate jacket from light weight wool that she can pair with other garments.
Back to the original topic, I have in my head either an A-line skirt with godets or a pencil line skirt to probably just above the knee, then a bias cut flounce (fairly deep for the appropriate length), or maybe even a flounce cut into a circle shape. Now, I want the skirt to maintain the hand of the rayon, but I want it to maintain it’s shape, be professional looking, and look good for at least a couple of years.
I am thinking of putting just an underlining in it. Batiste? Knit underlining? Suggestions and critique please. I have plenty of time, I just ran across this fabric in my stash and it’s still a pretty as I thought it was the day I bought it.
Ahhhhhh, I FOUND the preview button that eluded me on a previous post!!!! Hallelujah! I’ve not found a spell check yet, however, so what you see is what you get…..
