In this video May Martin discusses the benefits of Lining Fabrics. Whether you are making a dress or a jacket, it is important that the inside is comfortable against the skin. A lining can complete an outfit and make it a lot more comfortable to wear.
May discusses the advantages of Polyester Anti-Static Dress lining. She describes how the wideness of the fabric is well-suited to large projects. Because this fabric does not cling to the body and is firm, it is great for suiting and dressmaking. May explains how to use a firmer lining if you need more support on your outer fabric.
May talks to us about Synthetic Habutae Faux Silk, describing its soft texture and floaty, light weight. This fabric is fantastic for lining as its lightness and smooth touch is very easy to wear.
Lining fabric can also be used for layering. May suggests using either of these fabrics as a under layer for lace. The lace can be either the same colour or you can create a contrast by layering it over a different colour. A whole rainbow of colours are available in both of these fabrics.
