Hi everyone, I'm new to this board, so I thought I would jump right in here and ask two questions. What is the best sewing/embroidery/quilting machine and what is the best cotton fabric for lining children's clothing?
Thanks so!

You will find a lot of reviews of sewing machines in the box to the left labeled "sewing machine central". As to your other question, what exactly is being lined, and what pattern are you using?

Cotton batiste is a good cotton lining.

Depends on what you are lining. If you are using cotton, use cotton batiste. Be sure that you wash it a few times to get out any shrinkage. If you are making a girl's dress, you can eliminate the neck facing by using a lining in the bodice. Also, lining the skirt makes a nice invisible hem because you catch your stitches in the lining.

I remember a class I took years ago where the teacher taught us how to substitute a lining for the facings of the bodice. We used the same fabric for the lining as the regular fabric. I believe it was sleeveless. If it was open down the center front or back, it was sewed and then pulled through the shoulders. Not sure if I could do it right now without a lot of testing.

Depends on the wieght of garment but I often use fine lawn or voile for summer wieght dresses. using two lightwieght complementing fabrics it's possible to make a reversible childs dress. Very sweet and practical
