How to make a lining pattern

educo | Posted in Patterns on

Hello, this is a general question for all types of garments, pants, shirtts, jackets. I planning a leather jacket and I’d like to know how to make a lining pattern for it. Is just cutting the same pattern in a lining fabric or are adjustments needed besides the hemline being higher than the actual garment? Also, does the method apply for all types of garments? I don’t want to ask the same question over again.

Thanks all!

    This book is excellent and answers all your questions:  http://www.taunton.com/store/pages/070360_tcpg.asp

    I own a copy and highly recommend it if you plan to do much lining, and it sounds like you do ;)

    Hi! I'm no expert, but I recently created a lining for a store- bought jacket pattern and often line my corduroy jammy bottoms with flannel...I use the same pattern to cut pieces for the areas I want to line...Then when I sew the lining together, I increase my seam allowance by just a smidge (almost 1/4")...This always works well for me...Good luck!
