Step 16 Construct the lining and attach to self fabric

Step_16_large

Lining will be constructed in a similar manner as the self fabric. Use the same pattern pieces but without the hem allowance. Instead of sewing up the darts, you will pleat and baste across, with front bulk pressed towards the side seams and back bulk towards center back.

Leave 7 inches open at center back for the invisible zipper. Fold up 1/4 inch at the hem and press. Fold up another 1/4 inch, press, and top stitch to finish your hem.

Match up self and lining fabric wrong sides together with side seams in line. Press the 1/2 inch seam allowance along the lining fabric 7-inch opening toward the wrong side. (When worn, the right side of the lining fabric will rest against the body.) Sew both layers of fabric together at the waistline with a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
