I'm making a dress from this stretch poplin and I realized I should probably have a stretch lining too. Stretch linings seem a little hard to come by. I need something slippery for tights and breathable. this is a casual dress I want to wash in the machine. Can I get away with Bemberg rayon?

Bemberg rayon cut on the bias might give you enough give to work with, I dunno. There don't seem to be that many options in stretch linings, but Gorgeous Fabrics seems to always carry a few.

Why not just make a separate slip?

I find slips slide around or slip down below the skirt. They just don't work as well as a lining.
