I have some wool/lycra blends and some rayon/poly/lycra languishing in my stash that I want to use for pants. I'm wondering what to use for lining.

It's been a long time since I've made lined pants, and I've never made them using a stretch woven. For lined pants, I've really only used 100% wool or I've made unlined pants in various cottons, blends etc.

Does anyone just use rayon Bemberg? Can I find a rayon stretch lining? I have some stretch silk charmeuse in the stash, but I didn't want to use something that *high end* for lining pants. (So far searches haven't turned up much else.) Any recommended sources?

I have lined white knit pants with swimsuit lining.

As they are summer pants for Florida weather, I made shorts length to the upper thigh level and attached them at the waistband.

I was very happy with how these worked out.

I found some stretch rayon woven at my local fabric warehouse. I wonder if you could find something similar online.

There is "stretch" lining at NY Fashion Center in lots of colors. It must be mechanical stretch across the grain as there is no lycra content. I have never bought from this vendor.

I have some similar, or maybe the same, stretch lining that came from Emma One Sock and it is pleasant with the non shiny surface but is sill smooth and has just enough cross grain stretch to work as a lining for a stretch woven like a wool lycra. I put my cuts through the wash and dryer and they came out looking the same as when they went in.

Rayon/poly/lycra fabrics don't need to be lined to flow nicely and not get misshapen.

As far as I know, stretch rayon is not available anymore. I lined a pair of wool pants in stretch silk charmeuse; it feels heavenly. Mood has a large selection of stretch silk charmeuse and crepe de chine.

Thanks everyone for your replies and suggestions - all good ones!

Sewliz: You're right that the rayon/poly/lycra has enough snap in it to recover pretty well and not bag out, it's just that it's a bit on the thinner side. I like the idea of an extra layer in there. I'll have to think about that one a bit more and maybe audition a few different fabrics. It may be best to use it unlined.

A rayon/ lycra woven sounds nice but apparently not easy to find - who knew? I'll look into Ann's stretch linings at Gorgeous Fabrics and will check out Mood's stretch silks. I know Kashi has stretch silks too - that's where I've gotten stretch silk before. His prices may be a bit better than Mood's and probably not much more than the synthetic stretch linings. I'll have to see.

It sounds decadent and heavenly to line pants with silk!
