How do you line a dress with a slit?

Hi there,

I wanted to make a dress similar to this one:
http://www.promgirl.com/popups/biggerimage.cfm?filename=/_img/PRODUCTS/500/PromGirl-479466309.jpg

But I am unsure how to handle the slit with the lining. With any dress I have made before the lining was just attached at the top of the dress and then hung down as a seperate "skirt" underneath the outside of the dress.

With a slit in the dress you can see some of the inside of the skirt - so how do you handle attaching the lining to the skirt of the dress? They wouldn't naturally stick together - so how do I achieve this? The fabric I am using can't be ironed, so I can't simply use iron on interfacing to attach two pieces of fabric.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much, in advance!
Liz

You need to add to the center back seam allowance on the garment so that you have a facing. You need to look at a sewing book to see how it's done. Easier to explain with pictures.

Yes, pictures would be most helpful, haha. What term should I be searching for online/in the index?

This month's Threads has a "Master Class" article on lining a vented skirt. It explains it well with lots of pictures.

Exactly. It looks good. I'd look for sewing and lining a dress with a vent.

I didn't see a copy of it at Michaels when I went, so I will have to order it online. Is the magazine article for a straight, business suit type skirt - or for a dress type skirt? Or would the techniques be the same for both? :-)

Thanks for the tip!
