Hi y'all. I've made a couple of elastic waistband A-line skirts out of opaque cotton fabric.
I would like to make another elastic waistband A-line skirt, but my skirt fabric is primarily white and, thus, see through, and also a bit "lighter" in weight than regular cotton fabric. I know I will need to make a lining for my skirt so I bought some white cotton broadcloth to use for lining.
I stumbled upon this great tute about lining skirts (http://www.isew.co.uk/sewing_techniques/add_lining_to_skirt-c-00209.htm) and I am wondering what is the best way for me to put the skirt and lining together?
I am leaning toward using the first method (since both fabrics are lightweight and a bit sheer) of treating the sheer cotton skirt fabric and cotton broadcloth lining fabric as one piece of fabric. I feel this will make the elastic waistband casing and any seams less bulky.
But I'm wondering if it's more common when lining a cotton skirt to make the skirt and lining separately and sew the lining in to the just the skirt's waistband. Which sounds easy enough in theory, but it also sounds tricky since I plan on making a waistline casing for an elastic waistband.....
Okay enough rambling from me as I think I am starting to confuse myself! Any advice much appreciated!
