Do I need to flatline silk satin if I'm bag lining it?

I've been sewing for a while, but I have thus far avoided satin. So, of course, my first satin project is going to be my medium-weight silk satin wedding bodice (genius!).

The bodice is built somewhat like a corset. It will have an inner, functional layer of coutil flatlined with quilting cotton, with boning in between. I want to use this to bag line the outer fashion layer of satin.

So I've bought my silk satin, and my poly satin for a muslin, and my walking foot. My question is, should I flatline the satin for structure and to avoid wrinkles (and to keep the boning from showing through), or should I just make a go of the satin alone? If it makes a difference, I'm a perfectionist who is NOT the most steady-handed sewer in the west.

Thanks! Oh, and if flatlining is recommended, what fabric (preferably one that I can find at Hobby Lobby, since that's my only local fabric store and I don't really want to go online for flatlining fabric) would be good for it?

Subject: Do I need to flatline silk satin if Im bag lining it? Date: 2/1/13 7:27 PM

When I want to conceal the boning in my historical bodices, I put in a layer of wool batting or flannel between the boned layer and the fashion fabric. It's lightweight and breathable and nicely cushions and conceals the boning. I *probably* wouldn't feel the need for an additional layer of flatlining/fabric *inside* the fashion fabric... but I might want to interface it with something if it needed a little more body. How about silk organza?
