Buckled hems on underlined garments
I am about to make a pair of wool satin trousers and want to underline them in a very light china silk. The pattern is designed in such a way that lining would be tricky (pleated & gathered paper-bag waist w/fly zip).
In the past when I have used underlining, I have occasionaly had a bit of a problem with the hems. When I hem the pants or skirt, there is sometimes a buckling so it looks like the outer fabric is not the same length as the inner fabric and outer fabric develops a kind of horizontal blob. Is there a way to avoid this? I’m interested in solving the problem for this project and many others. I make a lot of garments with lightweight linen for warm weather and like the look of an underlining.
I’m open to any sort of suggestions.
