I am an expert knitter but more of a novice/make it work sewer. I am making a dress by altering an existing pattern to my own measurements and designs (taking a beaded cable sheath dress and making it backless and adding sleeves). The gage of the finished knitting pieces most definitely requires lining. The yarn is a worsted weight beech modal (rayon, essentially) held alongside a lace weight wool (not conventional I realize but it worked for me). The knit does have some drape/stretch to it. I would appreciate any advice on a good way/material to line the dress.
I don't know if i should do a structured under dress and let the knit drape over it, or get a stretchy lining and stitch it under the knit pieces then just construct the dress like i would any other. Thanks!
