All About Linings
Instructor: Sarah Veblen
Sarah Veblen

Using a lining in a garment does a number of things. It makes the garment hang better, enables the garment to slide over the body or other garments, finishes off the interior of the garment beautifully, and often prolongs the life of the garment.

This 16-lesson class will teach you what fabrics to use for linings, how to select the best lining fabric for a particular garment, how to draft a number of lining patterns, and how to care for lined garments.

Instructions will also be given for the following:

  1. sewing linings into skirts and pants with a waistband
  2. sewing linings into skirts and pants with a facing
  3. sewing the slit of a lined skirt
  4. sewing the kick pleat of a lined skirt
  5. attaching a lining to a jacket
  6. hemming a jacket lining by hand and by machine
  7. using a lining in place of a facing
  8. developing a lining for very full skirts and dress
All sorts of other tips will be offered as well.

Increasing you knowledge of lining fabrics and lining techniques will take your garment sewing to the next level!

The optional kit contains more than a dozen different lining samples (8" x 5").
