I"m making culottes for my niece (and getting paid! W00t!!) and starting the final pair, I realized I needed to line them. No problem, I drafted the pattern myself, I can make another pair of bottoms a touch smaller.

MY question is, how best to attach them? should I go ahead and put them in now, before I sew the leg seams, or wait and put them in last thing?

ANd they're gonna be so cute.... leapord spots, with a black liner that is going to show at the bottom.

May I ask why you need to line them?  Is the fabric see-through?  I only ask b/c I recently made more than 20 pairs of culottes for the girls at my church.  I don't have a serger, so I used french seams throughout.  It worked wonderfully.

Otherwise, I have no clue about the answer to your actual question.  LOL

Got it.  I figured it was something like that.  I guess I'm thinking that you should sew the lining and the culottes separately, and then you can put them together.  Otherwise, you will have a seam inside the crotch (if you don't mind that, then I don't know that it really matters).

This is polly not what you mean, but isn't there already a seam in the crotch?

I'll just do it seperate - seems like less of a hassle anyway Cheesy

THanks for the help!

Yeah, there's a seam down the middle, but if you lined them separately, all the edges would be on the inside.  Does that make sense?

Anyhow, hope you figured it out, and hope you post pics when you're done!
