Adding a lining

    I’m relatively new to sewing and most of the projects I have worked on so far have not required a lining. However, for the Cappuccino top I bought a very pretty flower pattern on voile. Its a little sheer and I think a liner may be in order. Is there a tutorial or another pattern that explains how to add a lining?

    TIA!

    I haven’t tried adding a lining to this pattern, buy maybe someone else will chime in who has?

    Well, I haven’t done it yet, but I have studied the pattern and fabrics. I am going to try an underlining technique. Two weeks ago when I was in Boston, I stopped in this lovely little fabric shop, Mercer’s Fabrics, and bought a beautiful light, semi-sheer cotton lawn and contrasting fabric. I found a solid cotton lawn in the same collection that I believe will work well as an underlining. Right now, I’m busy finishing my Soho shorts (they’re so incredibly cute), then I will do the dress. As I felt the fabrics and tested the drape, they seemed to work well together. What do you think, Liesl?

    Sure, provided that the two fabric work together. I’d be concerned that it would add weight to this top, and I’d probably be personally more inclined to wear a camisole under it than add a lining, but that’s probably a personal preference. Let us know how it turns out!
