Of course when speaking about using silk as a lining I have to mention china silk – often refered as habotai, habutai or pongee.
The china silk is lightweight, sheer and plain-weave fabric. It is perfect to use as a lining for summer garments.
I have bought this yellow and light blue silk fabric this year for my summer jacket(s) and dresses in Chinese online shop. On the HelloSilk website you will find all needed information about different kind of silk, use, sewing advised, etc.. In the online shop you may order silk in millions colours.
For the use in garments you will use the 8mm china silk however it is not recommended to use it in the fitted garments style as the seams could tear from the stress.
