I am making the Burmese jacket from Folkwear #134 ( for myself and my daughter, and I want to line the jacket. I don't really know how to do this professionally and I was hoping one of you may be able to steer me in the right direction.

Pam, I read your tips to suzan from 12-29 in her lining thread ( You obviously know what you're talking about, but it just made me scared and confused and I had to huddle under my bed and cry! :-)

Anyone knowing of a tutorial online... I may just call up a few seamstresses in town and pay them for a private lesson!

Blackie: Here is a link from Threads magazine that gives a step by step tutorial on lining a jacket. They call is "bagging a lining". I've used these instructions and it is really easy and simple to do.
