Hey friends! This is an update to my previous techniques on how to add a vent and vented lining to the Jenny Skirt here on BurdaStyle. This particular tutorial should come before "How to: Sewing a Vented Lining."
This is the next step in perfecting a pencil skirt, in my opinion. Giving it a lining. To line a skirt that has a vent, we need to take in special consideration for a few things. Adding a vent, in my opinion, is cake. It’s this issue of the lining that’s a beast! For clarification, I’ve actually done line drawings here (please don’t judge my artwork too harshly) plus there are extra tips to make the sewing easier and the final result more professional. My artwork is nothing special, but I think it will do the trick. I think you’ll agree, that once you’ve perfected a vented and lined pencil skirt, it’s one of those “go-to” patterns that you will most likely revisit again and again. So, break out your pencil skirt pattern and let’s draft a fabulous lining for a vented skirt. Here we go!
