Lining fabric helps your dresses, jackets, coats and skirts last longer, drape better and feel more comfortable. As the material between you and your garment, Lining fabric has to be smooth and soft while providing the structure, body and durability you desire. It is sewn into a garment, so it is easily replaced and repaired if necessary, and you can create visually striking garments with contrasting or coordinating colores. Silk habotai and its cousin, polyester China silk, are very popular as lightweight linings for jackets, suits and dresses, while powermesh is a superb liner for swimwear. For evening wear or gowns, silk organza and cotton organdy are very popular choices for a crisp volumizer. The Lining fabrics at NY Fashion Center Fabrics are available in a wide variety of colors, so you are sure to find the look that is best for you.
