Lining playsuit pants?

    I am a beginner, but I have made three tea party pantsuits without issue. I recently bought some seersucker that seems pretty light and I would like to line the pants as well as the yoke. Could someone point me in the direction of a tutorial that might help with this? I want to put snaps in the pants for diaper changes, and am worried that might complicate lining the pants or be above my skill level.

    One of the easiest ways to deal with a sheer fabric is to underline. That is; cut the main fabric and the lining fabric, baste them together around the very edge, then treat them as one for the rest of the construction.
    Obviously you won’t get the clean inside finish of a true lining. But you also won’t see your seam allowances through the sheer fabric.
    Super easy solution.

    Thank you! I will give that a try.
