I'm making a 1920's flapper dress using crepe backed satin the question is should I line it? And underline or just normal lining?

I'm going to use french seams.

(Oh I'm hand sewing it as well)

are you using it shiny side out or in? I'd think the crepe side would be a little rough for direct skin contact. I've used crepe-backed sating as a lining, and love it.

If you line it you don't need to make french seams, which depending on the weight of your satin may be too thick for it anyway. French seams are generally done on lighter weights. I'd line it since it will wear and hang better. If you want to go the extra mile underlining would be lovely. If it's drapey then underline in silk crepe de chine and line it in that as well.

Depending on the weight, I wouldn't line it at all. You could do french seams and it would be lovely unlined.

I'm with Nancy. I think the French seams are too heavy for this fabric. I would go with a Bemberg or silk crepe de chine lining. I do lots of french seams in my sewing because of the heirloom work I do. They are best on fine fabrics like batistes, voiles, sheers, and lightweight silks. Just my two pennies.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm finding the fabric frays like mad so I've no choice but to finish the seams properly. Ended up hand overcasting.
And I've sewn it with shiny side inside to make it easier to get the dress on and off.
