How to Add a Lining to the Ilford Jacket

Ever since the Ilford Jacket pattern dropped the #1 question we get is if it is possible to add a lining. We are here to tell you that it is, and it is easy! Adding a lining to the boxy sleeved version is a breeze. Getting a placket onto the sleeve adds a bit of a challenge but is totally doable. Make sure you have pre-washed your main fabric and lining before sewing them together, any shrinkage will cause your finished jacket to hang weird. Also, if you are using thick fabrics or quilting the lining (or exterior), consider sizing up your sleeves. Because of how the sleeves are sewn in flat, it is easy to size them up and keep the front and back pieces your original size.
