Lining material for cotton twill
what to use if I don't want silk?

I am in the process of making a cotton twill trench coat
for Spring. I don't want to line it in silk. I was thinking of using cotton. But what kind of cotton? Would cotton sateen be a good choice since it would have some slide? Poplin? Batiste?

My local discount fabric outlet has some cute and colorful cotton prints that are simply labeled "cotton". Not sure if they are quilting cottons or not which is the downside of my local discount fabric mart.

Thanks for your advice in advance.

I made a rain jacket and lined it with...cotton. Thin cotton, just a little heavier than shirtweight.

It's not "slidy" like regular lining fabrics. But I like it.

I also like using flannel for a light but warmy lining.

The mystery cotton at my discount place should be suitable then. It
is fairly lightweight. I was thinking of making a summery skirt from it but it is light enough to require a lining or slip so the panties don't show.

the purpose of a lining is not just to hide seams or add a layer for warmth, but to provide a slicker surface to help the jacket slide on over your other clothing (sometimes you will find jackets that have a silky lining JUST in the sleeves and a different fabric lining the body).

Take this into account when you select your fabric for lining.

I have a gorgeous (expensive) cotton tapestry trench coat that is unfortunately lined in either cotton broadcloth or sateen. It's annoying to wear because it doesn't skim over my clothes, and I have to plan sleeveless tops to wear under it. Honestly, I've had better luck wearing *unlined* jackets (like denim) than ones with clingy linings.

YMMV, of course!

Yeah, most cottons wouldn't be slick enough for me for a coat lining. I'd use a rayon or polyester if you don't want to use silk.

You can certainly use it for the body of your coat but I'd look for a slippery fabric for lining the sleeves so that it slides over clothing. You could use Bemberg rayon lining. I don't like polyester, so I won't recommend that.

I second the vote for bemberg rayon.

Thanks for all your replies. I just looked at my favorite lightweight
coat from Free People and realized that the body of the coat is lined with cotton and the arms are regular poly lining material. I totally get it now. I am going to look for Bemberg for the sleeves and do
the rest in a fun light cotton print.
