I am making a skirt (New Look 6129 view A) out of a silky woven rayon and would like to add a tricot lining. The nylon tricot I purchased is basically a stretchy lingerie type fabric. So far, I have cut the tricot the same size as the skirt, (minus the waistline elastic casing pieces). I was wondering if it would fit better if the tricot lining was cut a bit smaller that the skirt fabric, and if so, what is the best gage of "how much smaller?" There is about 6" of ease/gather in the design to allow the pull-on elastic waist design. Also, any tips on how to attach the tricot lining to the waistline elastic casing would be greatly appreciated! The Rayon in non-stretch and the tricot has plenty of stretch. Thank You!!

Personally, because the tricot stretches, I'd cut it about two inches shorter (.5" on each side seam), quarter the waist band, and stretch the tricot to fit as I sew it on. That way you don't have to worry about it stretching while stitching because that's what you want, and you can control how much it does so. I tend to prefer less ease though, so YMMV. It's worth pinning or basting it with the smaller measurement and see if you like how it feels.

2014 Sewn: 80.5 yards

I'll try anything once :)

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

I used tricot to line a burn out linen and cut the tricot 1/4" smaller per seam, mainly in case it stretched when sewing the two together. I used a 1 1/2" hem and made the lining 1" shorter.

Personally I think if it was too much smaller I'd be more aware of the feel of the lining in the dress. As it is I don't even notice it and the skirt portion hangs nicely.

Thank you both for the guidance! The skirt turned out great and I posted the review with a link to this forum. http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/100854
