Oh lining! Fully lining a dress can sound like a lot of work, as you essentially need to sew a second dress and attach it to the first – but for some projects it really adds to the finished garment and takes it up a level. For my Karri dress pattern I recommend fully lining the dress, as it not only results in a beautiful long lasting garment, but helps enclose all the raw edges of the many seams, and means you can skip finishing all those raw edges!
Today I’m going to show you how I fully line a dress with as much machine stitching as possible. This method is slightly different than what i show in the Karri instructions, mainly as an option for those lovers of understitching out there (ok i’m raising my hand!).
