In my new year quest to become better at sewing, I am looking to learn about lining.
I want to make another Marie skirt, but this time in a fairly lightweight printed cotton. I’ve got some polyester lining fabric which would probably work, but I’m wondering whether a lighter thin cotton lining would be better. Would this hang better? One problem I notice on some of my unlined skirts is that (if I’m wearing tights) the front hem kind of bunches up at the front of my knees as I’m walking. Is a silkier texture better to avoid this?
I’ve gone off on a tangent, my main query was about cutting the lining pieces. When lining something pleated, should the lining also be pleated, or is this unnecessary?
