Hi Renren, it would depend on whether I was relying on the stretch for fit. If not, I would use a regular silk or rayon lining fabric. If I needed stretch, things would get more complicated -- maybe one of the new stretch woven linings or stretch silk blends, if I could find it in a good color, which often isn't easy. Or I might use the same nylon tricot used for separate slips. I would not cut all the gores; I might use a simple two-piece A-line shape instead. For other knits with more drape and stretch I sometimes use swimwear lining or the mesh type fabric that Emma One Sock has sometimes, but I think those would be too soft and clingy for a more fitted skirt like this.

I think it is lovely. My problem with the Jalie 8-gore skirt (which I did like very much) is that it is hard to get a good fit. Each seam must be adjusted once you realize the fit is not right! And you have 2 gores more than I did to deal with. I do have a question should you return to read comments. You say you would line the next skirt you sew from this pattern. I am curious what fabric you would choose to line a wool doubleknit.
