I always debate how to finish my garments when they are fully lined, so I thought I would ask to see what variety of techniques this diverse community prefers when it comes to finishing lined garments! Traditionally, if the garment is fully lined, I’ve left all the seams unfinished, just pressed flat, so that I don’t add bulk with any finishing techniques. I’m questioning this method on skirts though, where not all of the seams are fully enclosed (side seams and back seam) – would you still leave them unfinished or would you zip over them with an overlocker?
