A Silver Lining with Sarah Peasley
Lining a knit sweater or jacket transforms it from casual to couture. You don't even have to know how to sew to give this luxurious finishing technique a try! The process, as outlined in Jean Frost's Custom Knit Jackets, is a simple one when you take it step by step. Sarah will guide you through each stage as you stitch lining fabric to each of your swatches, join your swatches together with slip-stitch crochet, and then seam the lining for a clean, flawless finish. Discussion will include lining fabrics, sizing issues, and other applications, such as skirts and bags.
