I am really really interested in learning the intricacies of lining a garment -especially how to draft lining for patterns I create or patterns I purchase (since a lot of times this is not part of a store bought pattern). Which class would be better this one on underlinings or the one on All About Linings? Thanks.

Hi ZejaDesigns,

I'm happy to tell you the difference between these two classes -- Underlining and Linings.

Underlining is a technique where if you want to change/enhance the structure of a fashion fabric, you cut out and hand baste another fabric to the fashion fabric. For instance, if you're making a wool skirt and you wished that the wool fabric had a bit more structure for the style of garment you want to make, you could underline the garment sections with a fabric like organza or even a very lightweight cotton.

The Linings class looks at linings from several standpoints: the functions of a lining, when to line a garment, how to sew a variety of linings like a skirt with a kick pleat, and how to develop quite a number of lining patterns. The examples of the latter should give you a lot of basic information so that you can apply it to other styles of garments as well.

Please let me know if you have other questions -- I'm happy to answer.
