Lori, I didn't line the fabric. It has a black backing and isn't at all revealing or see-thru due to the pieces all over it. I saw the same type fabric made up in a type of tiered skirt at Chico's - the underpiece of the lower tier was just a solid knit which helped make the skirt less revealing. For tops, I wouldn't think that a lining would be necessary. The fabric is very stretchy - I forgot to mention I used 1/4" elastic on the shoulder seams to help stabilize them.

I like the way the fabric looks made up. I had my eye on this fabric but wasn't sure I wanted to buy it. Looks better made into something. Helpful review.

What a neat top; great in that "fussy" fabric.

You could be the Hanzel and Gretel of sewing. Your top was such a good way to show off this unique fabric. It is quite eye catching.

Very pretty. Did you line the top? I have two pieces of this type of fabric and can't wait to sew it up.

Wow, that is so pretty! That fabric really sews up nicely, doesn't it? If you ever get lost perhaps you can use the trailing bits to find your way back home. ;-)
