Hi everybody, I am a beginner sewist and I was wondering what fabric should be used to line a dress made in silk?
I plan to make the Dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves #101, and the material I have is a flowy silk sateen (navy blue with white polka dots).
I was thinking I should at least line the bodice, but I am at a loss about what fabric should I use.
Can anyone help me? Thank you so much!!

    Living in Texas and loving silk , which can be hot in the summer, I line with a cotton bamboo muslin blend.
