I want to make Simplicity 2846 out of some tweed that I have. I have never used tweed for anything before, so i'm a little unsure as to how this fabric works. It "looks" like it might be a ravelly fabric and that might pull apart from just looking at it. Are you supposed to line tweed to avoid problems, or am I just assuming something is going to go wrong with it just based on it's appearance?

Isn't tweed wool? Isn't it scratchy? I would line it for that reason alone.

This stuff isn't wool and it's actually very soft.

Well, in that case you want that soft cuddly stuff against your skin...not some lining!!!

This fabric looks like it's loose, and it has tiny holes in it. I've pulled on it a quite a bit, and it seems to to be stable, but I don't want to make a dress that's going to fall apart while i'm wearing it. Like I said, I have never worked with this type of fabric before, and I don't know how it might react.

I looked at the pattern. and noticed in the one pic she was wearing a blouse underneath..
Really sounds to me that if you do not line the fabric you described.. you would definitely need to wear a slip underneath the dress sexi. that should solve the problem of it having tiny holes you might see thru ..
If you don't want to wear a slip..then I am afraid I would have to say yes to using a lining. Sorry.. but I think you knew that already.. I don't want you to make up the garment.. then not wear it because you realized you should have put in a lining.. But wearing a slip could maybe solve any hesitation about wearing it. I can't see your fabric. but you can.. and so you be the judge here..
Almost everything looks better/more expensive if its lined.. Might hang better you know.. Sounds like its really nice fabric btw.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to spoil the feel of soft...ooooh I love soft next to my skin...yummy! BUT if the weave is loose it will shift and change it's shape when wearing and washing...not a happy look...gets frumpy and old looking after a few wearings. Speaking of frumpy...I will post a new thread on the latest Designs in machine Embroidery ugh!

I'd recommend lining it. Because of the weave, I'd worry a dress would stretch out in the seat without a lining to take some of the strain.

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

You could use the lightest silk organza lining. You would thus keep almost all the softness and lightness while gaining stability.

Take a look at fzxdoc's gorgeous handling of the lining of her tweed jacket here:

What kind of fabric is it actually? Wool, cotton, knit, woven, etc. (Tweed is not fiber content.)
