The BIG Project: Skirt Lining

Last night's project was to work on the lining of the Vogue 2637 skirt. I drafted a new front lining, combining the main front piece with the side front pocket piece.

I also drafted a new back lining, following the instructions for a vented skirt lining in Taunton Press' Easy Guide to Sewing Linings by Connie Long. This book has been out of print for awhile, but is now available as an e-book ($13.99) on the Taunton Press site. This is a great resource, and it's great that it's available again, albeit in a different format.

The fabric I'm using for the lining is silk habitai (china silk), also from Gorgeous Fabrics

Tonight's goal is cutting the linings and mesh overlay for the My Hearts a Flutter shell.
