In reply to: 's message, "Bodice/Sleeve Lining" on 17:21:17 09/15/01 Sat

I'm making a very simple adult, princess line dance dress out of silk dupioni. Could a seamstress out there tell me what's the best material to use as the lining for the bodice and sleeves? A seamstress at our local sewing shop -- not an ID dressmaker -- suggested a rayon rather than a mid-weight cotton, which is what I used for a velvet dress of the same style. True you need to line silk with something a bit more flowy and soft?

-I use cotton for the bodice, but I use a regular lining fabric (slick kind) for the sleeves. Most of the dancers I have worked with like the slick lining for sleeves as they slide on easier. So I have been told.

-COTTON ...... best bet
