I always feel like certain garments are not complete w/o a lining, but am having trouble finding any resources on this. Also, I am baffled by how most sewing patterns skip the lining part. Maybe this is more in the realm of tailoring, but I would still like to learn step by step how to put linings in a garment. I'm working on a skirt suit right now, so I need some help. Thanks.

Reader's Digest's Complete Guide to Sewing. It not only talks about linings, but also interlinings. I was making a MOB dress, out of silk and I wanted to line it in cotton batiste. The dress had a french dart and I didn't know how to line the dart area--together or separate. Had it not been for my RDCGTS, I would still be working on that dress!

Power Sewing Step-By-Step by Sandra Betzina, $25. and Easy Guide to Sewing by Lynn MacIntyre, and Marcy Tilton, $20, both have some excellent lining how-to's and tips. Plus either has lots of other golden nuggets of sewing. Both are published by Taunton Press.

I like Easy Guide to Sewing Linings by Connie Long (Taunton Press) and Vogue Sewing, Revised and Updated (sixth&spring books). The Vogue book is a general sewing guide that I like.

Judy Barlap's instructions for drafting jacket linings are great, and free.
