I prefer to line most garments I make even if the pattern does not provide guidance for this, so I have been working out for myself how to line skirts and dresses for a few years and noted one or two problem areas. This book explains exactly how to deal with the problems I have encountered, as it gives adjustments for making lining patterns from any garment pattern, and information about how to attach and neaten the linings.
There are lots of diagrams and photographs and the explanations are clear and easy to follow. The book is divided into different types of garment (skirt, trousers, dresses, blouses etc)and gives options for different approaches to lining each, with advice on how to choose.

5.0 out of 5 stars The full low down 3 Feb 2004
By A Customer
really good book full of clear, easy to follow explanations. Good for those new to linings and to experienced sewers. The pictures are detailed enough for you to see what the text means . Great reference book - I'd strongly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource 27 Mar 1999
By A Customer
I took a linings class with Connie Long at G Street Fabrics and bought this book as a back-up to keep my memory fresh. It contains everything in her class and more, with concise directions and excellent photos. Long is my favorite teacher at G Street and she's probably one of the best sewing teachers anywhere. The ideas she presents in this book, from making your own lining to lining dresses, pants and coats, will really improve your sewing. She teaches you how to bag a lining - don't be afraid to try it. It really works and the results are fantastic. She covers zippers, bindings, seam finishes, just about everything you can do to give your garment that professionally finished look. If you've ever been confused about when to line or what to use, or just wanted to do a better job, this book is the best. An added treat, you'll get to see some of Long's own creations which she uses to illustrate techniques. Her students are always awe-struck by the outstanding quality of her work. If I could sew half as well, I'd never buy another thing from a department store.
