I've been using Caress taffeta lining (100% anti-static polyester with moisture absorbency) for a couple of skirts I have made. Despite my efforts the finished lining did not hang evenly at the hemline with the outer layer (prior to being hemmed). I can only assume that the fabric slipped whilst being cut (and sewn - even with a generous use of pins). Any suggestions how I can minimise this problem in future?

Am sure others will chime in but I think I learned eons ago to allow the lining to hang a day or two prior to hemming. Meaning that it was normal for it to "adjust".

I find it easiest to use weights and a rotary cutter, along with cutting single layer, when working with slippery lining fabrics. Putting a layer of tissue paper on top of the fabric before placing the pattern can also help prevent the fabric from being pushed around when you cut.
