I recently bought The Dressmaker’s Handbook of Couture Sewing Technique. After flipping through the beautifully photographed pages, I immediately started riffling through my stash to sew my first lined skirt.
For the pattern, I used Simplicity 1690 from the 1950’s.
The wrapped seam edges and the color contrast look amazing when I put it on. There’s not a raw edge in this entire skirt.
You can read more about this, and my other sewing projects on my blog A Few Threads Loose:
I chose some lovely wine colored stretch cotton sateen (purchased on fabric.com in bulk just to have lots on hand) and some light gray lining fabric acquired at my local thrift shop.
