Hi! I am making my toddler niece a cute chocolate brown pinwale corduroy jumper for Thanksgiving. It has threaded designs that are an earthy pink and yellow. The front and back facings call for interfacing, which I am going to use sew-in kind, so I am not crushing the fabric at all. But I wondered what might be suggested as a complementary fabric that is soft but not as heavy for the inside facings. I think the corduroy with its design thread may be a little scratchy and heavy to use on the inside. Any suggestions or even tips for sewing corduroy? I appreciate it!

Second question...similar idea. I am also making my toddler nephew (they are twins) a cute bomber jacket using a faux leather fabric....just made an unlined one for my 7yr old son and he wants his cousin to have a match? But I am thinking of lining the toddler one. Any suggestions on a good lining material for this type of jacket?

Thanks so much!

Your topic heading is about interfacing but your message indicates you've made that decision. Are you asking about lining?

For the facings, I would use cotton-polyester broadcloth. You can get a nice color, matching or complementing the corduroy. The polyester content helps keep it from wrinkling in the laundry. That minimizes the need for ironing. The thinner broadcloth is a lot easier to handle than corduroy facings would be.

Yes, Doris...I meant the lining, not the interfacing. Sigh!

If you cut both the lining and corduroy with a center back seam, you can do all seamiing except for the back seam, turn it right side out, then pin the lining together and the corduroy together in one long seam and the whole thing is done quite easily. Tack the lining down at the underarm seam by stitching in the ditch through both layers (corduroy and lining) at each underarm seam. I sewed for 3 daughters and some of their favorite clothes were jumpers because they were so easy to put on and take off. No buttons or zippers. The lining doesn't need to be as long as the jumper. I think I made the ones I cut a couple or three inches past the underarm seam.
