Bagging the Lining Technique
How to stop the hem from "flipping up"?

I recently completed Jalie 2559 and was successful with bagging the lining...almost. The hem of the jacket tends to "flip up" and expose the lining underneath. I thought that once the lining was attached to the hem, the hem would remain in place. I attached the sleeve lining to the sleeve hems and don't have this problem. Did I miss something in the method? Should I have hemmed the jacket like normal and then attached the lining? I can include a photo if that would be helpful.

Thanks much.

If the lining is too short it will flip up or pull. If it's the facing area that is flipping up you need to cut the facing 1/4" longer at the inner edge. You should do this anyway, because invariably the facing is too short, and if it isn't you can always cut it off.
If the lining is showing because the hem is not staying up, stitch in the ditch at the side seams in the hem area and this should fix the problem.

If you have Sandra Betzina's Power Sewing she has the best description and photos of bagged lining. I do hem the jacket and cuffs before attaching lining according to this method.

Thanks for the replies, ladies. I have Betzina's Power Sewing book and will review her method.

The pattern's instructions actually have you hand sew the lining to the hem. Instead, I left an opening in one of the side seams and stitched the lining to the jacket hem at 5/8". It's the jacket hem that keeps "folding out." It's almost as if the lining is too long - even though I removed the hem allowance from all of the lining pieces. I'll edit this post with a picture tomorrow.

I know what you're talking about. Do what Nancy K suggested...stitch in the ditch at the seams. If it's still flipping out across the back can you tack it in a couple more places?

I will stitch in the ditch as I think it's the best solution at this point. There are several vertical seams so this should be enough for this jacket. I'll review Betizna's method for the next version. Thanks for the help.
