Web site/URL: The Technique of Underlining Garments
Class included PDF downloads, boards, and real time chat sessions. The kit included great samples, which were an integral part of the class, and half-scale skirt and bodice pattern to practice with. The class includes 12 lessons and 4 chats. If you miss a chat, a transcripts is usually posted within a few days.

Sarah Veblen, the instructor, covered:
the concept of underlining
the difference between lining, interlining, interfacing, and underlining
sewing darts and zippers in a garment that is underlined
making logical construction decisions
choosing fabrics
preparing your pattern and fabric
pinning and basting
marking your fabric and underlining

Sarah shares photos on how she has underlined garments and how the underlining fabric can affect not only the way the garment feels but also looks. Changing the color of underlining can enhance or mute your fashion fabric. She suggest you take your fashion fabric to the store and test many fabrics, making a fabric sandwich.

She also explains how to work with large expanses of drapey fabric and fabric cut on the bias.

The technique of underlining has improved the look and feel of my garments. It has expanded my fabric options since I now know how to underline sheer fabrics and can change the hand of a fabric to my liking. Here is a top I made after taking this class, underlining a cotton lawn fabric:

And here is a top I made using a rayon/poly burnout that I underlined with a rayon/lycra:

I have taken several online classes instructed by Sarah Veblen. She is well organized and offers so much information. Even if you have been sewing a while you will always learn from Sarah. She is prompt in answering your questions and is very pleasant to work with. The chats were informative and fun to participate in.

I highly recommend this class.
