Hi! This is the first time I am posting here, and I am a sewing beginner…thanks for your help!
I am making a dress with 8 kick pleats in the bottom. The pattern does not come with a lining, but I do want to line it since I am using a rather thin fabric. How should I line it?
1) If I put the kick pleats in the lining as well, they would bulk the skirt up.
2) If I just make a fan shaped lining, the skirt would also be bulked up by the fan since it’s not going to be open all the time.
3) If I just make a smaller fan shaped lining, I would have trouble walking.
4) If I make 8 slits in the lining, they would just kinda hanging loose and when I sit down, they might slip out of the skirt.
What should I do??? Thanks a ton!!
