Vogue 8626: lining

Vogue 8626 back lining

The lining for my coat is what we call kasha lining: flannel-backed heavy satin.  I added a centre back pleat for the upper back.lining back pleat insideI simply cut a 4-inch wide strip, stitched each long edge of the strip to the centre back seams and then formed a box pleat.lining pleat right sideI then topstitched large triangles at either end of the pleat to hold all the folds in place.  And for that extra little piece of finishing, I trimmed the entire lining with shot taffeta bias strips.  Here’s an honest shot of the interior front.Vogue 8626 front liningLooks pretty messy.  I never noticed how off the lining was at the side front attachment seams until I took this photo, especially towards the hemline.  How irritating.  BUT… is it irritating enough to make me rip it out and stitch it again?  That is the question. 😉

  1. Every time I see this lining in Fabricland, I admire it and touch it and wish I had something to make with it! LOL Do you know what it’s made of? I suspect something synthetic… does that seem to affect its personality at all in the wearing?

    1. I think kasha lining is 100% polyester. I’m not sure, though. I’ve never looked at the fibre content lable! It’s wonderfully warm and the satin is properly slippery – which makes it easy to slip on and off over clothes. It’s my fave for winter coat linings.
