Hi,
I'm looking into making some blazers and waistcoats (vests) etc but I dont want to just do plain all one colour lining all the time.
I was looking at a jacket the other day in a store and the lining was really cool with minature skulls (not in a cartoony way-it was grey silver colour with small skulls)
Does anyone know where I could find lining fabric in for example..paisleys,patterned and unusual fabrics for an interesting way to brighten up the inside of a project?
Thanks
Louise

Look for silk crepe de chine, charmeuse or silk twill meant for blouses or dresses. Look for sales and get on Fabric Mart's email list. I've gotten some nice bargains from them. I don't like polyester but that's a cheaper alternative. Just look for blouse and dress fabrics and not under lining.

Thanks!
I figured there wasn't a specialist fancy lining company that I was missing-the ones in the store are probably designed specifically for the brands.
Was just hopeful that they were available to purchase for the home sewing market.

Thanks for the tips : )
