I have cut out Skirt View D of Simplicity 1760 (with the shirred front center piece). The fabric I am using is crepe and it is pretty drapey fabric. I am going to line the skirt with a simple 'slip' type lining connected at the waist only.

Now that I am starting to look at the fabric more, I am wondering if it is going to hang wonky when it is done due to the fluid fabric. I was thinking I might apply fusible light-weight interfacing (like fusi-knit) to give the fabric a little bit of body.

Thoughts?

Cute pattern. Just my opinion, but I think fusing it with an underlining might cause a problem with the shirring. Have you considered using a lining that's a little bit heavier?

Or try underlining with a stretch mesh instead of fusing?
