How do I line a top that doesn’t call..
I will be making a dress for my daughter’s maid-of-honor. I have the pattern, matte satin fabric and Hang Loose lining. I was planning to line the skirt, but the woman at the store suggested that I line the top as well and she recommended that more than lining the skirt.
The problem is I’m not sure how to line the top, and wonder how to deal with the sew-in interfacing. I imagine I’d attach the interfacing to the lining somehow. My brain is getting tired trying to figure this one out! I have heard of underlining and find plenty of instruction about doing that, but haven’t found any of lining a top where the pattern doesn’t call for it.
The pattern for the top is Simplicity #9466, view A, which is shown on the model on the left and the top middle sketch. http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=9466
Because I’m more of a visual/hands-on learner, I would need a detailed explanation on how to do this. I have lots of books, including at least half of the Singer Reference sewing series, so if you have a book to recommend that might have photos along with explanation, that might help too if I have it or can get it through my library. Otherwise, I’ll try to understand any written instructions – and ask more questions should I not quite understand.
Thanks so much! …The mother of the groom is also sewing one of these tops, so whatever help I can get, I will pass along to her – and she will also appreciate it!
