I have another question because I am curious on what other people do in this situation. I have done this a number of ways before with good results, but I am always curious to learn what others do, and to learn other ways of doing things.
I have a dress with a fitting bodice, and gathered a-line skirt, I want to line both the bodice and the skirt, and am wondering a couple things:
1) do you gather the skirt lining? the same amount as the outside skirt?
2) do you gather them together as one? or attach the self as one, and the lining as one dress, and then attatch the two. do you then sew the lining together at the waist?
3) I know there are different ways to do this, but I want to know which way you have found works best, for less bulk at the waist, and the nicest finishing on the inside.
i love hearing all your feedback!
