I'm making a pencil skirt using stretch denim. I was going to line it with Ambiance lining since the pattern is for a woven, and the stretch isn't factored into the design, but then I got to thinking it would be better if the lining stretched like the fashion fabric so that it would have any additional strain.

Should I order some tricot? Or would the Ambiance lining be ok?

There are stretch woven linings that may be a better choice. For a denim skirt, you really shouldn't need a lining, so that's another option.

I wouldn't line a denim skirt either. If you don't want to use or don't have a serger you can use a Hong Kong finish on the seam allowances.

I agree wtih NancyK and if you've never done a Hong Kong finish. this would be a perfect time to add a new technique to your repertoire. Just practice first! I know I do! Good luck.
