LIning a jacket

SewNancy | Posted in Fitting on

I have recently seen in photos, jackets that have no back facing, the lining just attaches to the collar. These are not couture jackets, and I wondered how they are done on the machine. I use a back neck facing to bag the lining as per Cecelia Podolaks book on Jackets and love the look of these RTW jackets. Any thoughts?

    You may be seeing them in RTW, but when I attended design school (most graduates work in the RTW industry) we used back neck facings in all jackets. Our instructors were adamant that jackets without were to be considered an inferior product. Just my two cents' worth.

      Thanks for the laugh. I will keep putting in facings and consider my jackets superior products.

        Of course they are ;-)Seriously, the facing at the back of the neck has a purpose. This is a stress area and lining will wear out much more quickly than the (interfaced) facing.

      However, for what its worth, I saw this in an article way back and I think it was Threads. Or maybe it was in one of my books,,,,,,can
      t be sure. You contruct the jacket with the undercollar only attached. Separately you construct the lining attaching the front facings and upper collar. Your back bodice lining will have to be made the same size as the jacket back bodice. Put the jacket and lining right sides together, collars to gether, facing to front edge, etc. Sew all the way around. Turn inside out and hand hem around bottom and sleeves. I can't say that I have tried this and you could use this technique with a back neck facing as well. Wish I could give credit where do. Personally I like the body of the interfaced back neck facing in jackets. In blouses I sometimes find it too deep, bulky and inappropriate.

        Thanks, that would certainly work. Hot Patterns has you attatch the lining to the facings and then sew it to jacket. I like being able to catch stitch the facing in the chest area to keep it from moving too far. Obviously if you attatch the facing to the lining you cannot do this.
