Dressmaking Fabrics for Lining

When embarking upon a new dressmaking project it is important to choose the correct Dressmaking Fabric for your project to achieve the required finish. If you choose to proceed with a lightweight Dressmaking Fabric you may also wish to consider using a dress lining. A dress lining is a second layer of fabric which ensures that your garment will not be see through when warm and will ensure that the wearer is warm and comfortable during cooler temperatures. Many Dressmaking Fabrics do not require a lining however the designer may choose to use it anyway to achieve a high quality finish and to hid raw seam edges, padding and interfacing and to ensure that the garment is smooth and comfortable when worn against the skin. We carry a wide range of dress linings designed to complement our selection of Dressmaking Fabrics -
