Question I need help with this please

I have my dresses I have sewed down (thanks to yall) pat. Now I would like to try something new. I want to add a lining or make the inside less "homemade" looking. How do you put a lining in a pillowcase dress? I have tried looking online and come up empty handed. I think there is a lady on here that lines her dresses, but I can't find the thread/post. Do you sew the wrong side of the fabric to the right side of the lining or reverse that? I am sooo confused. Please anybody help.

I've mentioned lining pillowcase dresses before.

My favorite vintage pillowcases are usually thin and white so even a thin lining really helps them not be 'see through.' If the lining is pretty thin (think like a muslin) it should still hang right yet give you the look you want for the inside. I cut the lining the same size as my main fabric, just 1" shorter so that after it is hemmed separately it won't show too much.

I've also used a-line jumper patterns for the shoulder part before. I just cut the shape of the skirt part narrower to fit the pillowcase. You can always do shirring at the top too or use the pillowcase like a normal jumper and gather it onto a jumper bodice.

There's just so much you can do with pillowcases!

I typically don't line the ones I make either.

However - I made DD one at Christmas and the snowman material was really thing - I did line it with white for extra warmth.

I cut the same pattern as the snowman material in white broadcloth.

HTH!

You can try this method:
Warning: it's kinda scary first because it's backwards sewing LOLOL....
I also hope it makes sense, if I don't - let me know and I'll take some step-by-step pics for you (and others who'd be interested).
Instead of putting right sides together when you sew the side seams, put them WRONG sides together and stitch down the seams. Then trim the seam, fairly close, a bit over an 8th of an inch. Iron the seam open so it lies flat and open, then turn the dress inside out.
Make sure the seam lies nice and flat, ironing it at this point will help, too. You usually won't need to pin anything. Then stitch down on the inside of the seam about 1/4" or a bit less from the edge - it'll enclose the "raw" seam and will give you a nice finished look - I finish my unlined totes like that. It makes the seam quite a bit stronger, too, you won't have to worry about the cotton or cotton-blend fabrics fraying at all.
Of course, you can always buy a serger! LOLOL
I'm telling ya, I bought one about 2 years back and WOW am I impressed!! I don't know how I ever lived and sewed without one, either LOLOL.
