    Would it be easy to make this dress without a lining?

    In my humble opinion, no , laurac. The lining is not difficult to attach, the instructions for this pattern are outstanding. If one omitted the lining one would need to add facings, and though not impossible, if one is going to go to that bother with that step, a lining is just as simple.

    I have nearly completed this dress using a quilting cotton and lining it with a cotton rich poplin, the lining gives the dress its lovely drape and body.

    I can not praise this pattern enough, and already have many more planned to construct.

    I’m getting ready to cut out this dress, but I’m questioning my choice of lining fabric. I’d like something with a silky finish so that it won’t cling to tights. Any suggestions?

    I have used a fabric called bemsilk in the past, it is not real silk , but was nicer than the ‘plasticy’ lining fabric.

    Thanks Nicole, I’ll see what I can find locally this afternoon. I tend to over think these sorts of things 😉 It’s nice to get an expert opinion!

    Absolutely ask in the stores, they are the experts and know their products.

    Looking forward to seeing what you make!

    Experts? You may be giving my local chain store employees too much credit 😉

    ha ha ha, isewstuff – I sometimes wonder if the the employees in the chain store have ever sewn at all.
