I'm making the Kasia skirt from Burdastyle, and I want to give it a lining. Normally, I'd just make a copy of the outside of the skirt and attach it at the waist, but the outside is complicated, and I don't think it would help to replicate that in the lining. It would probably make it super bulky, too.

Should I just square off the top of the back and front pieces, and treat it like a straight skirt? Or should I put the pieces together like this and just draw a new side seam to match?

I think doing it like this would work, but If anyone has anymore ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Just make a straight lining with a basic block.  If that is what you get putting the pieces together as you show, then do it.  The idea is to have the same general shape but without the bulk.  And ANY skirt can use a short straight lining independently of the external shape.
