  • Give Some Thought To... Linings That Pop

    Look at this fantastic lining! Tsumori Chisato trench coat.

    Just a quick thought as we head into this Labor Day weekend...

    The next time you buy lining fabric for that coat or jacket you're making, think about using a print instead of a boring solid color. Imagine wearing the trench coat above and then flashing everyone with that cool lining. Sarah Jessica Parker, a Mood NYC customer, buys silk prints to line her coats because she likes the unexpected surprise of a print lining. I replaced the lining on a friend's J. Crew coat with a charmeuse print, and my friend says she gets more compliments on the lining than she does on the coat.

    So instead of automatically reaching for a matching solid lining fabric the next time you sew a coat or jacket, consider a fun print. Here are two from MoodFabrics.com that I like:

    302144, silk charmeuse
    302132, silk charmeuse
    Enjoy the long weekend, and happy sewing!
