I have this adorable Alexander Henry fabric that I want to turn into a pair of pants for my daughter...problem is it's VERY lightweight and won't work for a CT winter! I have some lightweight fleece that is a corresponding color and I am wondering if maybe I can line the pants with that...and if so how do you do that? Do you just add more of a seam allowance to the pattern or what?

(Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm a novice sewer!)

Answer is yes. Here is a link to a site on how to line pants(there are no pics, but you should be able to figure it out): http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_sewing/article/0,,HGTV_3320_1376865,00.html

I did something like this when my kid was a toddler.  For kid's clothes, just think of this more like a reversible pair of pants, with an elastic waistband... You just cut 2 sets of each pattern piece.  Right this minute, I can't remember the sequencing...  Embarrassed  I promise I'll give this more thought & post again tomorrow - or someone else will pick up this thread and walk us both through the process!  I know it turned out well enough I made at least 3 pairs, too.   Wink  Rats.

Thanks for that link! That totally makes sense and that's actually how I was thinking I should do it but I didn't want to end up ruining the AH fabric lol! I'm going to give it a try tonight...

You could also just make some fleece long underwear bottoms.  Then she could wear them with other pants too if she feels chilly.
