Lining a Top
I started summer sewing, Ya for me!! The top I started to make for Zoe is McCall’s M5573. Reading the instruction sheet, the first thing I see I will change is the way the top is lined. Now they have instructions to sew the lining together, then sew the top together. Sew the lining in leaving the shoulders unsewn. Then you are supposed to sew the top and slip stitch the lining UGH!! This method has never worked out for me. So I will show you my method to having a lining neat on the inside.
This is the method I was trying to explain. Now lets do it a better way.
Sew the shoulder seams of both the fashion fabric and the lining. Then lay the pieces right side together and stitch up the front, around the neck edge and sew the armhole. You will be leaving the side seams open at this point.
