What are the best types of fabric to use as a lining for a dress or jacket? I prefer fabric that breathes and used a cotton fabric to line a dress made of linen/rayon. I now wish I had used a more silky fabric, because the dress is indeed comfortable, but it is kind of heavyweight. I have some woven rayon that I would like to use for a lining on a jacket made of a similar piece (to the dress I already made) of linen/rayon but how can I tell if it is too heavy? I also know that the linen/rayon does stretch some as it is worn, so I’m wondering if the woven rayon piece I have might not help with this. Does woven rayon characteristically stretch when worn, too?
