I was making a cape..just making it up as I went along and decided it would make a much cuter skirt!  My only problem now is how to attach a lining. It would be for a child..or a really skinny adult and I want to be able to put something in so it's not so risque. I am going to put elastic around the top (weave it through) along with a draw string type of thing so it can be adjusted a bit more. I'm just not sure what I would sew the lining to. Any suggestions?

I'd love this info for further referrance with bags too Smiley

Thanks!

Oh, lining is so NOT fun, but it makes things look so nice.  I always sew the lining to the crochet loops that are on the inside of the bag.  Measure everything, pinning it if you have to.  I iron my fabric heavily so that the creases stay.  If you have a sewing machine, I'd measure everything and machine stitch the sides, fold down the fabric around the top and then hand stitch it into the bag or skirt.  Or, you could hem the fabric for the skirt with the machine all the way around, drop it in and hand stitch to the yarn.  It's not too bad once you get started.   Cheesy

You could get a nice slip and put underneath. Bypass the whole lining thing...

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"
