Lining will be constructed in a similar manner as the self fabric. Use the same pattern pieces but without the hem allowance.
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.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
