Bagged lining for simple top

Betty_Wolsonovich | Posted in The Archives on

*
I am sewing a simple sleeveless, jewel neck top and I want to add a lining. I have a similar ready made top with a lining and the armhole, neck, seams were done by machine, leading me to believe that the lining can somehow be bagged as can be done for a vest or jacket. I have tried several times and have been unable to figure this out on my own, and none
of my reference books or magazines have any articles on the subject. If anyone knows how this can be done, I would appreciate the info.

    You need to leave the side seams open; connect the neck edges and armscythe edges; turn and then do up the side seams.

      *I inserted a bagged lining almost completely by machine into a camisole/bustier with straps by doing the following. Complete all vertical construction seams for outer fabric and lining(princess lines, side seams and insert invisible zipper in back of outer piece); sew centre back lining together only to measured bottom of zipper, in my case, approx 1"; leaving shoulder seams open, sew neckline of lining front to outer fabric front and lining back to outer fabric back; sew armholes UNDER arm from notch to notch only; clip and trim as per usual. Sew shoulder seams of front and back, including lining. Press and hand-sew outer shoulder lining to outer layer. NOW for the fiddly part: reach inside back zipper opening and flip bottom seam out - sew half of it only... then you have to pin around the other side to sew the other half. Press; stitch centre back of lining to centre back zipper.Phew, that is hard to explain without photos or diagrams, but it CAN be done.
