Best stretch lining?

Hi. I'd like to start making more knit dresses, and I'd like to line them. For both 100% cotton jersey dresses, and for 100% polyester knits, do you have any recommended linings? I tend to wear tights every day in the winter, so I'd like my lining to prevent my dress from sticking to my tights, yet be comfortable against the skin.

I don't know of an exact type of fabric but it has to have equal or more stretch than your fashion fabric. If the lining has less stretch you'll have a fit problem. You want something silky/smooth to go over your tights. Maybe a slip fabric or a lightweight spandex. I don't line my knit dresses nor do any of my rtw knit dresses have a lining. I wear a slip if needed.

You can use the tricot knit. I've only lined one knit dress and that was because it was very flimsy material. I wear a ton of knit dresses, usually 3 or 4 a week, and I don't have any issue with the poly ones sticking to tights. The cotton ones might grab but a slip fixes that.

Okay, thanks. I do have a short slip, but not in different lengths, so I might buy some. I did buy some stretch lining from my local store for my cotton knit.

You can super easily/quickly make half slips for yourself in the lengths you need! You would make them from nylon tricot- which is not difficult to find in a variety of colors.
There was a sew along last year dedicated to sewing lingerie- our first project was an easy half slip. Lots of great details and hints in that thread.
ETA: I am at work and can't post the links. Look in the sew along thread, and right at the top there is a page for Lingerie Resources and Tips. About 2/3 way down you will see the (extremely long!) Lingerie sew along/class thread.
