The compulsive sewing side of me has a tendency to line everything. I just don't like a flim flam piece of clothing, I suppose. When I began making this jacket for Olive, I noticed there was no intention of lining it per instructions. I restrained myself, followed the instructions and discovered that finishing the facing with a bit of bias tape was quite freeing. The corduroy is heavy enough that it can stand on its own. The pattern suggested making the bias out of the fabric, but the corduroy was too thick for the task, so I opted for pre-made in a contrasting color.
