Hi,

I am making a knit jacket and was wondering what kind if fabric to line it with? The same knit fabric?

Thanks,
Rebecca

The same as with any other fabric type. Something slippery will help keep the jacket from riding up the backside.

There have been a couple discussions on this recently. I used a mesh knit for a ponte jacket I made. It worked very nicely.
I also just bought some of this. It's fabulous...it feels like a silk jersey.
