Hello everyone. I bought this pretty fabric the other day for the SWAP project I plan to make this year. I'm fed up of having lots of clothes that don't go with eachother! The fabric has a bit of a stretch to it. My question is 'how should I line this and with what, or would it be easier just to wear a skin-toned cami underneath?' Now to see if I can attach the photo from my phone!

Hi Magneta
I would probably wear a cami underneath but I always take the easy way out! Otherwise what about skin tone swimwear lining fabric? I have this in both 2 way and 4 way stretch. Tone on tone could look good too.
Curiosity has the better of me, what are you making with the lace. I am looking for ivory/beige stretch lace at the moment but will have to search a bit further afield as none to be found locally.

Hi Magenta,

The look currently is layering. So, wearing a cami or another similar shirt underneath lace is not taking the lazy way out, it is the in look. Two layers of lace is really nice and quite opaque.

Have fun making your tops, Susan

I'll be making a scoop-neck dartsless style top with long sleeves that will be unlined. The fabric has a chevron kind of pattern knitted in and is dyed in colours grading through chocolate brown, beige and turquoise. I've got a day off work tomorrow so will try to master down'loading the photos from my phone. Otherwise will have to admit defeat and get help from DH or DS, the second of whom will scoff at my lack of tech-savvy!

Just remind DS that it is our generation that invented all this technology he and his generation love so much! I find it's a message that male offspring need to hear now and again.

I vote for separate cami if the lace knit is ombre or multicolored. Maybe something slightly slippy and slidey?

The fabric sounds lovely. With the different colours running through it, I think it would be interesting to wear it with different couloured camis under it to vary the look, especially if it is for a SWAP project.

Thanks Julie for all your helpful feed-back. I think the idea of different coloured camis underneath is really good.

What are you making? I had an unlined, long lace blazer once and didn't like it because the "underneath" look was so messy. I wore a cami underneath, which covered the torso, then a skirt or pant. Since upper and lower weren't color-coordinated, I had white peeking through at the top and black/blue/demin/whatever below my hips. It wasn't a good look at all, and I got rid off the jacket. I'd line it to avoid that outcome. If you do, try power mesh knit (Emma One Sock). Very lightweight, cozy, washable and affordable.

I have a couple of lace tops (stretch) which are partially lined. That is, the body is line, but the sleeves are not. The lining is cut into a V neck, while the lace is designed in such a way that it looks as if it fastens down the front, but is actually a lace trimming.

Ursula

The lining is lycra or something which is also stretchy. It is not attached at the bottom.

Thanks everyone. Am thinking along the lines of a scoop-neck top with long sleeves. If I line the top, I will not be lining the sleeves. It's a long weekend here, so will be spending as much time as possible sewing!

Sarah, your fabric sounds like it has the Missoni style colour pattern that is currently very chic.
I am following along with this thread as I too have some stretch lace yardage that I am not sure what to do with.
Mine is multi camo colour and I want unlined long sleeves too.
How are you planning on finishing the neck edge, self fabric or something else?
Happy long weekend, we have one here too...if I could only get someone else to cook the turkey!

I stilll haven't decided how to finish the neckline, whether to line or not etc. Am going to see if I can find something made with similar fabric in a shop and see how it is finished. I am now attempting to attach a picture of the fabric.

I just bought some lacey fabric from EOS and can't wait to see it in person. I hope the link works to show the fabric.

My question to those who have considered this issue: What do you think of a removable lining that would be attached with tiny plastic snaps or something. The lining could be batiste or voile in a cream color. Also, what style? I don't want too many seams and was thinking of a top of some kind opening in front so I could wear it as a sweater.

Help!
