    I’m hoping to do a dress similar to the one on page 142 (want to get a ballgown feel and put lining and tulle inside) but I’m not clear where it tells you how to attache the skirt lining? Its clear for the bodice but hard to understand about the skirt?

    Are there any additional tutorial about this? Want to do the zipper and all.

    Can you explain where you’re not clear so I can help? The skirt gets attached at step 4 on page 144, and then the side seams are sewn up after. But I’m actually wondering if you’d benefit from the Fairy Tale Dress pattern, since it includes a tulle layer as well. It might have everything you’re looking for, and in great detail?

    OK I see it now. I’ve cut out the pattern pieces so I think it will make more sense. Yes I did think about the Fairy Tale Dress but thought since I had the book, let me try as many variations as I can with this.

    I’m going to bypass the tulle for now and just try a simpler version with a rayonny drapy material I picked up.

    I’ll have to check if anyone else did some fully lined dresses and follow their pictures.

    If anyone has any pic of the underside of the dress construction please share. I’ve seen a blog about adding the lawn and crimoline (tulle type) but its hard to visualize the stitching without seeing the inside of the dress.

    So in the homestretch of the lined zipper dress. On page 145 top #6 it says to finish the lining seam allowances. But won’t these be sandwiched inside the outer fabric and lining so won’t be showing. So I’m assuming it was the same as the lined bodice where we don’t finish the seam allowance?

    I didn’t get the impression that we were finishing the outer fabric seam allowance in #6 .

    Any clarifications?

    Ava, you can choose whether to finish them. I sometimes do, even on a lined dress, but it’s not absolutely necessary unless you have a fabric that ravels a lot. When a lining is open at the bottom, like on dresses, sometimes it’s still a good idea to finish the seam allowances. But it’s really a judgement call on your part.

    Aah OK thanks Liesl. So you do sometimes finish the outer fabric seams also in lined garments?

    Yes, in fact sometimes I finish the lining seam allowances too. It depends on the fabric and how much I’m worried about ravelling. I hope that helps!
