Lining for looks, not warmth

    I have some awesome pin whale corduroy fabric that I want to make in to the sunday brunch jacket. I would like to line it with a really fun bright quilting cotton, but I am wondering if:

    Would it be to thick and if it is not, how would I turn the facing pieces in to a inning?

    Rosalyn, I used a fine wale corduroy with a quilters cotton lining and it worked very well. Here’s a picture of the interior of my jacket. http://www.flickr.com/photos/27764985@N02/3984201735/

    After all that, I noticed that you want to do the sunday brunch jacket, not the school days. Wow, I’m really not paying attention.

    But anyway, I’ve sewn the sunday brunch twice, both times with a fine wale corduroy.

    I thought it was the perfect weight of fabric for the jacket.

    As for making a lining instead of a facing, check the flickr group if you haven’t already. It seems like I remember someone else lining it??? Good luck!
