  • Lining dilemma

    Hi y'all

    As some of you may know im making a skirt for a pal.
    The material is quite see through so I thought I could easily solve this problem by adding a layers of cotton lining.
    But, now im thinking about static.Will the cotton against the musliny main material cause any kind of problems like bunching up as she walks?
    Should I have got some other type of lining!!?

    Shouldn't Do...

    ...Definitely no static...both fabrics are natural so they won't cause static.

    You can avoid bunching if you match the side seams of skirt and lining and put in a few anchor stitches every 4 or 5 inches...this should keep the two layers together without them moving against each other.

        Took the half made skirt to my pals last night.Only remembered at 5pm the previous day that Id made plans to meet up with her.
        I decided to use 2 layers of lining/underskirt as it turned out to be quite sheer.

        She really liked it!!I was so worried she'd hate the way the stripes go(due to me convincing her I wanted to do it an easy way ie no panels) but she didnt mention it and was really happy.
        So she tried it on(or I pinned it on)and we sorted out where the loops are going to go as she wants a belt to go with it which will be tied into a big bow.

        I have to add the loops,add the zip, sew the whole lot together, make the belt all by the 20th June!!! eek!
