Now that is fun: a dressy skirt and pajama bottoms from the same pattern. :)

You are so very adventurous and creative for a beginner. Keep up the good work.

Yes drsue, you are right, I did line thru the thigh. I wouldn't even mind the white color if it was all the way down. Don't worry, that is on my 'to do' list.

It looks like you only lined through the thighs, is that correct? Or is it undergarments ending showing on the legs? If it's the first, then choosing skin colored lining would likely fix that, even it remains only partially lined.

Very adventurous. Yes, the lining does show right through, but you seem very able to fix that.

I am a beginner, and I haven't lined anything yet, not to mention do a review. Your doing great!

You are doing well for a beginner. I didn't attempt to do lining of anything for years after sewing. Why, I don't know. But lining does make a garment seem more polished. Keep up the sewing and keep us posted.
