I need your opinion

I am torn. This is the fabric I picked up from my trip to Mood for the cape I want to make. The left side of the photo is the fabric's "good" side and to the right is the back of the fabric. Sorry for the dark picture.

What I am torn on is whether I should do a lining for the cape. Normally, I would want to, but the back side of this fabric is actually really pretty and I wouldn't mind if it was showing. If I were to line the cape I would use a pale pink fabric for the inside. Or should I just use a baby pink bias tape on the edges and forget the lining? Decisions, decisions. What do you think?


  1. Hmmm, do you have to consider warmth? Depending on the temperature, using a lining would enable you to add an extra layer for warmth. Plus, I'm all about the fun linings. :) I just discovered your blog, and I'm totally digging it. Aloha!

  2. Is the fabric wool? Or another type of fabric that will be all clingy to whatever you are wearing underneath? If so, I would recommend the lining. Lining isn't just for looks. Sometimes it is so the fabric won't cling. Lush silk or satin linings are one of the things I love about my vintage coats.
