In Motion - Lining Options

September 27, 2018

The In Motion Leo can be unlined, fully lined, or lined only where you would like. To keep the tutorial simple we went with one construction method; however, if you are lining the front, back or both, you may enclose the seams as shown below.

Lining the Front

Grab the front bodice chest piece. Lay right side (RS) up.
Lay the yoke, right sides together (RST), with the chest bodice piece. 
Place the front bodice chest lining on top, RST. Pin all three layers together.
Sew or serge.
Open up the main fabric and lining. (Yoke is folded over on top of the lining so that it's out of the way, it's just hard to see here).
Flip the bottom front bodice piece up and lay RST with the chest bodice piece. Raw edges should be matching. 
Fold down the lining to meet the raw edge. Pin all three layers together. Sew or serge.
Reach in and pull the bodice RS out.

Lining the Bottoms

Shown here are the back bottoms and back bodice. However, this is the same method that is used for lining the front bottoms and enclosing your seams.
Lay the back bodice RST, matching up the raw edges. 
Lay the back bottoms lining on top, RST. Pin all three layers together. Sew or serge.
Topstitch. Repeat for the front and then head to the first step on page 12 of the tutorial.

capsule wardrobe is a minimalist approach to clothing, where each piece is an essential item that coordinates with the other articles.  With Emery's gymnastics-oriented pre-k class in mind, I sewed four tops, four bottoms, and one piece of outerwear to create sixteen outfits, all with movement and activity in mind.  Take a look and see how easy creating a mini capsule really can be!

Desert Breeze / Shorewalk MASH-UP!

When the Shorewalk released last autumn, we immediately imagined the maxi length sweeping along the beach in summertime.  Summer is now here, and we couldn't wait to make this vision come to life -- with an additional summery twist!

The cold-shoulder detail of the Desert Breeze was exactly what we wanted in this maxi, and now you can make your own, too!
