|Normal sewists probably always line their coats and jackets with a standard lining fabric, but if you're like me sometimes you want a little more pizzazz! Unfortunately, pizzazz and lining do not yet seem to coexist.
Whenever I sew a coat, I like to line it with bright and fun cotton fabric. The problem with this is if I wear a long sleeved top or sweater and put on the jacket, the sleeves will usually “stick” to the inside of the coat’s sleeves making me have to reach up the arm hole & pull my blouse or sweater back down, and that’s just a pain in the booty.
To get around this, I just use regular old plain Jane lining for the sleeves only. This way you get the best of both worlds... snazzy, cute lining and a coat that’s a breeze to slip on. :)
