Lining a jacket with a center back seam
I need some help lining a princess seamed jacket with a shaped center back seam. The pattern is Simplicity 4302, view D. I have made and fitted a muslin which will become the underlining for the jacket. The fabric is a soft woven so the underlining is necessary for added structure. I am also using a lightweight interfacing on the entire underlining. The pattern calls for a partial lining – the side fronts and a two piece combination backstay-lining to allow for movement and stability of upper back. However I would like to add a full back lining to hide the underlining and seams. Ideas anyone? I have added a lining to a simple unlined jacket that had no center back seam by adding a center back pleat to allow for movement as shown in a previous issue of threads (May 2000 Number 88). Is the technique for a center back seamed jacket similar?
