Lining a pinafore
« on: February 04, 2019, 17:21:35 PM »
Hi all!
Thanks for adding me!
I'm making the Utu pinafore from "breaking the pattern" by Named : https://www.namedclothing.com/shop/breaking-the-pattern-a-modern-way-to-sew/. The thing is I've never lined anything before and the instructions on the book are not clear enough for me.I can't find any tutorial on youtube.Any ideas,please?
Many thanks :)

Is this the pattern?

If so it's just a long waistcoat (vest in US).

Make the outer garment and make the lining but leave the sides open.  Right sides together and stitch all around except for the sides.  Sew one side seam on both fabrics then turn through the other (open) side and press.  Sew the last side seam in the fashion fabric then close the lining from the outside with a narrow "false French hem" for want of a better name, or slip stitch it together by hand.
