What does everyone think of fancy lining a jacket- a silk(y) print or spots or a very bright colour lining? The jacket will be black, and I'm making new look 6028. Would you line the body differently to the sleeves ?

I would line the body and sleeves the same but in a contrasting fabric to the shell of the jacket as contrasting lining will look great.

Sounds lovely. A silky print would look stunning.

Sounds really nice. I have a black jacket with polka dots on the inside. I'd line the sleeves too as they will look great if you roll them back.

Definitely. I love jazzy linings. I do it in knitting too!
