I just made my first dress with my own drafted lining. It was fun, and I was happy with the result. I know most commercial patterns with a waistline seam instruct you to press up the seam allowance and slipstitch the bodice lining down onto it. However, the last dress I made, I attached the skirt lining to the bodice lining, and then stitched-in-the-ditch along the waistline to keep the lining in place (so it wouldn't ride up on the inside). Now I'm questioning if that's proper technique.
What's your favorite way to line dresses that have a waistline seam?
