To Underline or Not to Underline??
Hi Everyone! Everyone is so helpful so I’d like to put a question out for some feedback.
I’m going to try making my first pair of pants (I’ve only made overalls and swet pants before) so I’ve done some reading. I’m using light weight wool/polyester blend, it has a nice drape and body. Should I underline the pants with silk organza? I’ve read that it will improve shape and discourage wrinkles. Anyone’s thoughts???
Also, has anyone “shrunk the knee” on the pants they’ve sewn? Was it useful/sucessful? If you “shrink the knee” would you do the same to the silk organza if you underlined the pants, or just cut the organza to the same length as the shrunk fashion fabric????
I don’t mind taking the time with loving details, I’d like the pants to be very nice. Any thoughts????
