Ok, here's a puzzler. My daughter bought a cheap jacket at Charlotte Russe (is that a redundancy?) and twice now the lining has ripped to shreds after one wearing. The thing is, she loves this little shell pink pleather jacket, and it looks darling on her. I don't sew well enough to replace the lining on a pleather coat, and she doesn't want to cut the lining out because it will look bad and make the jacket unbearably hot.

Is there anything I could put on the lining to keep it from tearing more? Or any other ideas?

Thanks.

Silhouette Patterns carries a fusible very soft tricot interfacing that fuses REALLY well and without too much heat. Release the stitches along the hem of the jacket so you can get the the wrong side of the lining and fuse the tricot to the back of the lining to hold it together. It may make the jacket a little warmer but I don't think it would be a deal breaker for your DD.

you could mail it to me with a little heavier ling fabric. I just replace lining in a coat. I use the lining as a pattern. I would just make it a little bigger to give more on the inside.
Just let me know .
