    I am making dress B of the Music Box jumper pattern. I have purchased a beautiful wool plaid and I am interested in lining it so it isn’t itchy. I am confused whether to box pleat the lining and wool fabric together or can I make the lining a-line to fit inside the skirt that will have already even pleated?

    I had the same question, and wound up pleating the two fabrics together. Here are the tips I got from some helpful folks: http://www.oliverands.com/forums/topic.php?id=447

    and here’s how mine came out (inside of the front part, where the pleat is): http://www.flickr.com/photos/hemoglobinhummingbird/5138176910/

    Would love to know how it works for you if you make an a-line lining, that was another option I was interested in trying.
