How to add lining to a bodice

craftynote

I'm working on a new pattern based on pattern pieces from Simple Modern Sewing, a Japanese apparel sewing book translated (very well) into English. The bodice doesn't call for a lining, but I wanted the bodice portion to be a bit more substantial, and I also didn't want to have to bind or add a facing to the neckline. For those interested in adding linings to bodices (this method would work well for a dress) check out these two tutorials:
