to attach to skirt facing?

I really feel ridiculous for asking this. But try as I might, I absolutely cannot get my mind wrapped around how this is supposed to work (or if it would work at all). I want to make a lined pencil skirt. The pattern has a waistline facing (no waistband) and I'd like to attach the lining to the facing. I just thought that would look nice & clean. So I need to draft the lining of the skirt using the facing. Ok. I marked the facing seamline and drew my lining seam line to match. Got it.

I'm stuck on...wait for it...the CUTTING LINE. I know, add seam allowance and draw. But to sew them right sides together, the top of the skirt lining would be a rainbow shape...which, in theory should fit the facing (which is a U-ish shape)...am I crazy? Here's an illustration.

The facing. More or less.


What I'm coming up with for a skirt lining...roughly. So the two would match up right sides together.


Is that right?? I have a RTW lined skirt that utilizes a facing but they didn't attach the lining to the facing. Maybe this is why? Is it even possible? Would the lining lay properly? It's fine if it isn't the right (or easy) solution...I'm prepared to draft a lining using the skirt pattern and just having the facing in addition the lining. But this is driving me crazy. Obviously I'm not a puzzle person.

Go with that last instinct - use the skirt pieces for cutting out the lining.

You can either sew it at the waist with the facing (if the 3 layers of fabric isn't too bulky) or trim it to the size you want later (by holding it up to (or basting to) the facing). The cut/seam lines should be parallel to the facing (either the finished edge or the waistline), not the reverse U shape.

I have a review of a skirt with no lining instructions, so I cut the lining the same as the skirt. I sewed it onto the facing and it turned out great! If you click on the link in the review, you will see that the front of the lining is fine, but since I didn't have quite enough lining fabric I had to improvise a little in the back. Once you cut the lining the same as the skirt, it will fall into place! Review is Here.

I make pincle skirts for my daughter. and will be making 3 more . I attach my lining to the hem. Then I turn it up . If I dont have a waistline I sew it by hand. But the bottom of the skirt asways has a nice clean finish. Mary Jeane
