Simplicity

I would like to line this jacket to make it look nicer, but I am uncertain how to do it. I am a complete beginner with garments. Do I need to use a knit fabric since fleece has some stretch?

Thank you!

I made a ponte knit front-zip jacket recently and lined it with a meshy fabric (the kind you would find in swim trunks). I treated both layers as one for construction.

Is there a similar pattern for a lined jacket so you can have the instructions for lining handy?

I would definitly use a stretchy lining. I have used tricot in the past, but there are even some stretch woven linings, that I saw in Fabricland, but I have not used them.
Nice pattern.
Enjoy

PattyE, I like this idea! It would be easiest since I could treat it as one layer. ha!

TamNearPDX, good suggestion!

Thanks chelsy21!

Pamela R, never thought of using Tricot. I like this suggestion too. I haven't worked with it before, so that would be a new experience, I like that idea.

Thank you for the ideas ladies.

I lined a less structured fleece jacket with a knit fabric. I stitched it to the fleece, sort of quilted them together. Given that your pattern is a more fitted one, I would go with a lighter knit fabric. My jacket turned out heavier with what I did. I made mine to wear to baseball games, and needed the extra warmth.
