HOW TO SEW A LINED SLIT
I’ve always preferred a lined slit in the front of my skirt because it allows for more movement and can also be a nice design feature. Here are the steps to try lined skirts out for yourself!
Add a slit to your skirt and cut out all the details to show off your legs in this summery outfit. I used a u00bd seam allowance for my slit, but the seam width can be changed to your preference.
B2 indicates the garment slit seam corner point, while A1 indicates the edge of the waistband, and H indicates the length of the fabric from the neck to the middle of the waists.
For full coverage of the interior of the trabecchi diptych, press the lining seam open (only up to point A), point B indicates the lining slit seam corner point, and press the lining seam closed (up to point C).
Stitch a garment’s seams together from point B to the corner of point A to keep the lining in place and the seams from fraying or tearing.
Snip out a corner of the ball to reduce bulk, snip into corner B to allow fabric manipulation by hand, and snip out a portion of the length of the ball to cut it free from the edge of the net for use in the final stages of a play.
Steps 1u20138: Align slit and garment seams and open up snipped corner B. Stitch seams together starting from the hemline into point B. Repeat steps 5u20137 for the opposite slit side of the same fabric on the opposite side of each seam.

Do you sew darts in lining?
Let’s start with the parts of a dart, and I’ll explain the terminology so you know what I’m talking about. A dart is wide at the base and takes up more fabric; you’ll sew the darts in both the underlay fabric and the lining, so the layers mirror each other and have the same fit.
Can you add lining to trousers?
Because the Bottoms Up Pants don’t have a separate waistband piece, you’ll need to trim your lining pieces to avoid bulk in the waist. If you’re using another pants pattern with a waistband, you won’t need to trim your fabric.
How do you fix a frayed seam?
Backstitch to secure the seam, then sew along the unraveled section of the seam until you meet the stitching on the other side of the tear, backstitch to secure, and run a zigzag stitch along the seam allowance to prevent further fraying with a sewing machine.
