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.
Topstitch.

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.

Shortening a Separating Zipper

When I started designing the After the Rain and shopping around for separating zippers I was shocked at how limited the selection was. I found a lot of zippers that were too short or way too long! Not to worry, I am going to walk you through customizing your zipper for the length you need.
