Simple Sewing; Luxurious Linings

Description: ew items in your wardrobe are more luxurious to wear than a beautifully lined jacket. But the sewing has to be difficult, right? THINK AGAIN! You can line your own hand knitted jacket with the most basic of sewing skills. If you can sew on a button, you can line a jacket. Learn all of the basic skills required for lining a jacket without the worry of messing up the "real thing". Practice attaching the lining to the fabric, encasing the seams and finishing the lining along the edges. Learn tips and tricks along with the biggest secret of them all -- you do not need to be a seamstress to create a lined jacket. When complete, you will have a small silk lined purse. But most importantly, you will be ready to tackle lining a jacket of your own.
Supplies: Homework swatch, silk handkerchief at least 12" square (larger is better) to be used as lining fabric, sewing thread to match handkerchief, sewing needle (for thread), tapestry needle and scissors to cut fabric.
Homework: Create a 6" x 6" swatch in the knitted jacket fabric of your choice. Leave a 12" tail at CO and BO edges. Block the swatch
