Has anyone ever heard of/did a partial jacket lining: lining the body of the jacket but not the sleeves?

Opinions and/or experience greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure why you would want to leave the sleeves unlined if you are lining any part of the rest of the jacket. Part of the point of a lining is to allow easier on and off of the garment, especially the sleeves.

I suppose if you wanted to use a sheer fabric for the jacket and needed opacity of the body with the sleeves translucent, you might want to line just the body.

It's an unlined jacket pattern that fits me just right. But I hate looking at the raw seaming on the inside and a lining finishes that off so nicely.

STILL, I'm worried that lining the sleeves will add bulk, so maybe I can avoid that by just lining the shell.

You could do a hong kong finish on the seams. It would save lining the jacket.

Another reason why I wanted to try a partial lining is that the lining would add body to the jacket shell: I'm using this really lovely drapey Max Mara raincoat fabric.

most lining fabrics are incredibly lightweight, and will not add additional bulk.

It WILL, however, help the jacket to hang better, to skim over the body rather than stick and cling to your clothing.

Lining that adds significant bulk is lining designed to add warmth. If you don't need that, don't use it.

I underlined my Jalie jean jacket, body only not sleeves, it worked well. I did it so when I put my jacket over the chair it was cute on the inside and to cover all of the seams. Sorry I can't link my review right now.

Definitely agree w/Michelle L. But then I line everything - makes garments easier to get on and off, smooths out surface appearance, and just plain feels good.

There is no reason why you can't line this, but if you want to keep it unlined I love the look of Hong Kong finish on seam allowances. It's easy to do and unlined is cooler. There was an article a few issues ago in Threads about a triangular lining in the upper back, it crossed, and I've seen this in some high end rtw recently with bound sas. very elegant.
