Now, its time to determine just how long your lining needs to be. This must be determined before you stitch the lining to the skirt shell so that you don’t have to go back and unpick and be hateful about this experience. I like my skirt linings to generally fall 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) above my skirt hem. That means that I need to cut the hem allowance for the skirt shell off of the lining and then hem up the lining by 1 inch. For example, if the hem allowance of the skirt is 2 inches, then I would trim off 2 inches from my lining and hem it up by 1 inch. Make sense? For the purposes of this tutorial I cheated and serged an inch off the bottom of the lining. Easy, no?
