Hey everyone
I'm pondering what type of fabric I should line
http://butterick.mccall.com/b5486-products-11199.php?page_id=152&search_control=display&list=search
with.
I'm usuing a chiffon and I'm wondering if I can use a matte jersey or does it have to me a cotton?

What's your fashion fabric made out of? I don't see any reason why it would have to be a cotton, on the contrary if your fashion fabric is synthetic you DON'T want a cotton since the cotton may shrink in contrast to your garment.

I'd just use a stable knit like they suggest on the pattern, or a matte jersey seems like it would be fine.

The fabric is a poly chiffon, I don't want to use the lining fabric at joanns because the static is horrible, so I want to use a jersey instead

I would say go ahead and use something nice of the real fabric-ie persuasion, hehe, not a "lining" since you're using a chiffon, what's under it better look nice! Because we're gonna see it! Even if we only see it obscured. I defiantly wouldn't use some sort of awful taffeta or anything!

I sew with a lot of poly chiffon and generally line with batiste or charmeuse. That being said I find that when I put the chiffon and charmeuse together it's easier to work with if I startch them both ahead of time.

You could use Logantex's rayon "Ambiance" bemberg lining. It will maintain the floaty/drapey look of the chiffon, is static-free, and comes in lots of colors.
Vogue Fabrics has a good selection of colors.

iPad's auto-correct is my enema.

Maybe I'm missing something, since noone else has mentioned it, but I'm thinking the jersey has like 25% stretch and the chiffon is a woven with basically no stretch, right? I don't think you're going to like the results if you use a stretch lining with a woven, non-stretch garment.

I am in the same quandary as Tom. I may be missing something here too.
FWIW, Joans does have an anti static lining that I have used happily It's a touch heavier than some linings but it really is anti static. My personal preference here for a poly or silk chiffon would be the Ambiance bemberg lining. I love it.
