Work in Progress This is a work in progress. sherri2sew is currently working on it, but still wants to share it with you. Please feel free to comment on this.
Just started a project with this pattern and was surprised to discover that it is fully self-lined. There's no clue that I could find on the pattern envelope (except maybe the large fabric allowance). But on the instruction sheet there is a front lining pattern piece and the pattern layout shows the back piece cut twice. Sure enough, it's fully lined! So, I'm posting this as a WIP in the hope of saving someone else from the unexpected.

I plan to draft a neckline to armhole facing and use that instead of the lining, and I think it will be enough to support the pattern design in my lightweight linen. I also plan to contact Simplicity and ask them 1) why isn't "lined" part of the description and 2) why not give a separate lining yardage and layout as an option?

Heads up, everyone!
