I've recently been working on a suit, where instead of just using my usual acetate as lining I've spent a bit more money and splashed out on silk. My thoughts are if I am going to have something look nice and special on the outside the inside should feel the same too.

Plus I like the idea every time I put something on I get reminded how nice it looks and feels on the inside. As I don't ever like to stick with straightforward (because hey, that would be too easy!) I have also become more interested in fabric with large patterns. Which creates interesting cutting challenges.

Anyway, for those fabricoholics out there, feast your eyes on this lovely piece of silk!



It's going to be the inside of my still to be completed vogue 8543 jacket. This was a practice version - working toile. The actual final version is already done and the silk armani fabric I used to line it worked really well. I've been inspired.

I haven't really seen many reviews focusing on the lining. Has anyone got some pretty pictures to share?

Pretty. I love my clothes looking as finished and good inside as out. Initially I did not care, but now I like to finish seams or have a great lining. Love the surprise of a colorful print that would not happen in ready to wear.

I pay a lot of attention to linings since it affects comfort, care and performance.
I used to use Bemberg (Rayon) but now use silk whenever possible. It is strong, it breathes, pulls moisture away from the skin, is lightweight, dries quickly and can act as a windbreaker.
A pretty lining can also be a conversation starter--most ready to wear has solid lining, so a printed lining is a clue that this is not your ordinary jacket.

R, is there any way you can post a smaller version (or a link) of your picture instead? It's reading as GINORMOUS on my screen, making the text too hard to read with all the scrolling. :)

Thanks!!

I like to give linings a bit of extra attention. I like to do things like pipe the edges, feather stitch the CB pleat, embroidery pattern name and number on them, etc. I think it is important to feel like you have a bit of pizazz going on under a garment. That didn't sound rightbut I think you know what I mean. I love print linings as well.
