I've been asked by a friend to copy a skirt for her to wear to S. Africa this Christmas. She bought this hideous poly, stretch something or other for a lining and I told her that would be awful and she'd be uncomfortable. I suggested a cotton voile or batiste for lining and she agreed that would be better and asked if I could get it in red. Surrre, I said then set about looking for red batiste or voile only to come up empty handed. Anyone have a source or another idea for this lining?

Have you tried the online sources - sawyerbrook.com or fabric.com? Both have lining sections. Also, you can dye cotton or natural cotton batiste. Dharma Trading probably has something if you're going to dye it anyway.

I needed some red cotton lining last summer and ended up using a lower quality quilting cotton. The thread count was less than a nice quilting cotton which made it thinner, which was perfect for my lining.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I just found some red muslin at my 'local' fabric store. I was very surprised to see it and when I asked the clerk she said that now they are getting in dyed muslin fabric. I bought it for the exact same reason, lining a skirt. It is a most delicious and vibrant color. I washed it and it retained it's color nicely.

Hancocks has inexpensive broadcloth that is quite thin and soft in many colors. Would that work?
