Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleRose Perfect dress lining!
I used this fabric to line a dress made from Pima Sheen Sateen. Aside from having a lighter color than expected, this fabric was perfect for my intended purposes. Unlike other cotton fabrics I have tried to use as linings, this has a smooth texture which prevented undue friction between the lining and undergarments when worn, which keeps the lining and the outer garment from riding up at awkward moments. It also feels very comfortable against the skin. Because I live in a relatively humid climate, I prefer to use natural fibers in the garments that I sew. This fabric was easy to wash and sew, and very easy to wear. I was so comfortable in the dress I made that, even after several hours of wear, I didn't want to take it off! I fully intend to order it again in other colors for more projects.
