|I was making 10 panels of drapes lined with cotton sateen lining, 54 " wide by 85" long. Time consuming to say the least. Using the floor I'd lay down drapery fabric, then attempt to lay down the lining so that it would be even with edges and placed correctly. The lining would not scoot, would stick to fabric and I'd be walking around the edges pulling, tugging, smoothing. Very frustrating and time consuming.
Then I remembered reading the trick to put plastic bag around a pillow form before inserting it into a pillow casing. The eureka moment - plastic makes fabric scoot!
So I laid down a sheet of thin plastic tarp (1 -2 ml) sold as cheap painter's tarp on top of the drapery fabric. Cut it inside the edges then placed the lining on top (all 54 x 85") and was able to adjust the lining so that it squared with the edges. A minimal amount of pushing of lining got correct placement because plastic allowed fabric to scoot without it sticking against the drapery fabric. Placement of lining
became a breeze! Then I shoved one edge of plastic away from long side, pinned lining to drapery fabric in proper position, then same across the top attaching drapery fabric to lining. Then I gently pulled plastic tarp out. With minor adjustments had lining perfectly alined on top of drapery fabric. Voila! A headache solved.
