Hey Peeps! As a preference I prefer my jackets lined…..I find them easier to get on and off with a slippery lining and I prefer how it looks. When I made my green denim version of the Sew Over It Sorrento Jacket I asked if you’d like to see the process I used to line it and the answer was a resounding YES! Thankfully I had some wool coating the needed to be rescued from it’s hideous cape form so I set about filing the process to show you all how I did it. As I mention I am no expert! I have no idea if this is the “correct” way to draft and line a jacket but I really like the result I achieved and would totally use this method again when I make my next one (turquoise needlecord with Hydrangea lining 😍). I hope this makes sense and, as ever, if you have any questions let me know in the comment section and I will do my best to answer them for you.
