LINING FABRIC

What you wear, how you feel

Sewing in an interesting lining such as Rayon, Silk, Printed, Lightweight cottons, Stretch or Satin Lining serves many purposes from creating opacity, finishing off the inside nicely or helping the Agbada (garment) or Blazer Jacket, glide over your body or other clothes.

Rayon lining is a perfect choice for many different items ranging from outerwear to dresses, skirts or tailored trousers. 

Many different types of silk fabric make fantastic choices for lining. The color choice is endless. China silk is a lightweight plain weave that is perfect for lightweight garments.

Polyester or Printed linings are sold as fashion fabric, some are a perfect weight and economical option to use in place of silk charmeuse.

Lightweight cotton fabrics have many names: voile, batiste or lawn. You will find some to be ideal for a summer dress. They are all slightly different in weight and opacity and make perfect choices for children's clothes, tops, dress bodices or any garment where you want a breathable, easily-laundered fabric. Be sure to pre-shrink as you would with any cotton fabric

Knit garments are comfortable and easy to wear and sew, but choosing a lining can be a mystery. Here’s my tip for finding the best lining fabric for knits: look in the dancewear section. Everything from skating costumes to dancewear is usually lined and that part of the fabric store holds the key.

Tricot knits are great for dresses or tops plus they provide a built-in slip effect. Nylon or nylon/spandex blends also work well. The knit linings seem to be available mostly in the neutral shades such as ivory, beige, white or black. Try a bit of layering of your fabric and the lining options to see which shade works best.

Satin linings can be found in different fibers from rayon to silk. A crepe back satin lining has a good weight and is perfect for adding a bit more substance to outerwear. If the polar vortex is returning to your part of the world consider using one with flannel backing for an extra bit of warmth. In addition to the basic neutrals, satins come in lots of pastel or jewel tones to add a pop of color to your warm winter coat.

So how do you choose the best lining fabric for yourself or your project? 

There are so many options in the fabric markets that it can be difficult to decide.
