Hi everyone, I am not really new to the site, but this is honest to god my first post. I have sewn a few things already, purses, skirts, a pair of pants from jersey-ish material, but I need some help.

I found a great pattern for a dress that I want to make, I have never made one before. I want to do a lace overlay, but I don't know what kind of lining fabric to use for it.
Here is the pattern I found:


And all that what said was lining fabric, um okay. I just started sewing last year, I am attempting to teach myself because NO one in my family sews, and only a few do on my husbands side. This may be a dumb question, but what would be best.
Much appreciated

There's a type of fabric called "lining fabric." It's super smooth, usually polyester, but you can get it in a variety of fibres, including silk.

If this is your first adventure in garment sewing, check out the thread about using a commercial sewing pattern.

I went to Joanne fabric to find lining fabric, and honestly wasn't expecting them to be so heavy! They were pretty cleaned out too because of some spring sale that was going on, I ended up going with silk, but I think it may be too sheer - oops.

This actually isn't my first attempt at sewing with a pattern - I have done a pair of stretchy legging like pants (nice for pj's!) but that link was helpful, thank you.
