For some unknown reason I've told DD2 I'll make her dress for her school formal (!) I can sew and follow a pattern but just can't work this one out.

I'm using a crepe back satin with an organza overlay. The satin forms the lining for the skirt but I think it needs an additional lining for the bodice.

What would be the best fabric to use?

The pattern is Mccalls M6647.

Thanks smile

The easiest thing to do would be to self line with the same fabric, if you have enough. Other than that a simple polyester lining in a similar colour should do the trick.

Thank you smile I've been overthinking it so much that it never occurred to me to self line or use polyester!
