Lining an unlined jacket...
asking for help lining New Look 6911

I am making New Look 6911, just the collarless jacket B. The jacket is designed to be unlined--I have made it once before--but this time I'd like to add a lining.

I was wondering if I should do a traditional jacket lining with the pleat in the center back? and how would that work without a collar? Or, since the jacket is so fitted, should I just line it as I would a blouse, using the same pattern pieces?

I'd be grateful for any suggestions! Thanks!

For a jacket, I like the back pleat for movement. Many jacket linings do hang from a back neck facing and you just attach the lining with the pleat sewn and release it when you are finished attaching the lining. Does that make sense?

That jacket seems to work like a blouse so that you could simply line it as you would if it were a blouse.

I am also wanting to line a jacket - a western style 'jean' jacket. Any suggestions on how many pattern pieces to combine to make a lining pattern? The back is especially a question.

Here is a link to a basic description. I think they've redone their website, and there's a problem with the formatting, but the general idea seems to come through.

For your jean jacket, I'm going to assume that you have a back yoke, center back, side back, side front, center front, and front yoke.

There is definitely going to be some shaping on the seam between center back and yoke. I'd keep the back yoke exactly like the outer cloth, and put a pleat in the center back as the sewing.org website describes.

The website describes how to alter the front of the lining to account for the facing. The easiest thing to describe if you have more than one front piece is to just cut separate lining pattern pieces that account for the facing.

To hem the lining, if there are separate cuffs and waistband, you can just baste the lining to the jacket at the raw edge, and attach the cuffs and waistband as the instructions describe.

The above steps will get you a lining. The following might make your life easier.

For any seams that don't have any shaping on them, you can just overlap the pattern pieces to make a new, larger pattern piece. Just draw a line on each pattern piece where the stitching line would be, then overlap the pieces so these two lines match. If the lines overlap for the entire pattern piece, just trace around the outside, et voila, a new pattern piece for your lining. It wouldn't surprise me if you could do this for the seams between center back and side back, and between center front and side front.

If the stitching lines don't match exactly, you could still put in a dart or something. In a lining, if the stitching lines are withing 1/2" of each other, it really shouldn't hurt to just go ahead and ignore that. Just leave a gap where necessary; a wrinkle will probably form there in the finished product. You're going to have a few wrinkles here or there in the lining, anyway.

Judy Barlap has an instruction sheet telling you how to prepare a lining pattern.

It has been a long time since you posted your suggestion on how to line the unlined jacket. I just wanted you to know, it is still being searched and used.
