Add a Lining to Your Custom-Pleated Skirt
Here's how to draft and sew a lining for your chic, flowing skirt
In the August/September 2005 issue of Threads (#120, pp. 29-33), I explain how to make a fashionable, fun skirt using strips of fabric. The strips are joined to form a new fabric, which is then pleated and fused onto an inner yoke of iron-on interfacing. Adding a lining is even easier: just follow these directions for measuring and cutting, and you're almost finished.
Draft and sew a quick lining
A simple cylinder of fabric with a few waist-defining tucks will do the trick.
