To quilt or not to quilt the dress's lining19 h 06
I finished cutting and marking all pieces for my dress (V8146). The top part is cut in left of over crepe use for a previous project (pants for DS). The lining pieces are also cut. Since this bouclé is very soft and thin, I know that I will be quilting the lining to the jacket pieces, but my question is: "Should I quilt the lining to the dress as well?" Has one of you ever done that? Oh big question.
I know that Birgitte, the author of the so excellent blog Bubblegum4Breakfast had done it on a skirt (lucky daughter to have such a generous and talented mother) Here is the interior look of the skirt
The result is wonderful. Anything Birgitte does is wonderful, anyway. If it works on a skirt. Why not doing it on a dress? I will give it a try on scrap of fabric and then decide.
What do you think?
My lining is not silk charmeuse. I don't think my fabric was worth enough for that. I use a beautiful serged bemberg lining that will do the trick.
