Since I’m fairly new to this, my skill with lining is not yet perfect. With this in mind, I basted the lining of the some front pieces to the main fabric, accepting that this would mean having some visible seams on the inside. I didn’t do this with the back lining until after attaching the yokes to the back pieces, seams facing together, so it would be smooth across my back. If you’re more confident then all this will not be necessary, you can simply make a lining as usual. I also applied interfacing to the last few inches of each sleeve, basted on the lining and then hemmed them so they would be ready to go on.
