Hi Everyone,
I recently purchased some wool cashmere to make myself a jacket and yesterday at a sale I bought some satin to line it with but when getting ready to wash it I found that it's a stretch satin. I was wondering whether I can still use the stretch satin as a lining in a non stretch garment? Thanks in advance for your help.
Regards, Bruna.

Just be sure you are not stretching it when you cut, pin or sew it.
