I used a new-to-me technique from the recent edition of Threads Magazine to attach a lining to the zipper opening in the back. Essentially the raw edges are staggered, so the lining is offset from the zipper to avoid it catching in the teeth. I'm getting pretty good at installing invisible zippers. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My original plan was to add a lining as the peak of color, but the lining really affected the drape at the bottom. I ended up removing the bottom portion of the lining and inserting the godet instead.
