How do you replace the lining of a coat?


Answer by  Gretchin (352)

Turn coat inside out. Gently cut open the seams where the lining meets the coat. You can use old lining as a pattern (be sure to add seam and hem allowances) or just tack up the areas where it is necessary and have an unlined coat.

Pick a new lining that will contrast with the coat.Find the center back of the coat and make cut, then rip the lining out with seam ripper.Use the pieces you took out of the coat for a pattern and cut out your new lining.Assemble all the new pieces together, and then sew the new lining into the coat.

First open the coat and carefully open up the seams of the lining. Take it out and press with an iron. You now have a template. Cut the new lining fabric according to the templete. Sew all the pieces together and then place in the coat, baste and sew into the coat.

Carefully remove the lining from the coat using a seam ripper. Take the lining apart at the seams and use it as the pattern for your new lining. Assemble the new lining, and sew it back into the coat, either by hand or by machine.

The easiest way: carefully remove old lining and use as a pattern for the new one. At fabric store, find a lining fabric of similar weight and color. Use a seam-ripper to separate pieces of old lining. Arrange pieces on new fabric, cut out and sew. Tack-sew into coat.

You may have to take the whole coat apart to achieve this, but if you're willing to do so, take apart the seams you need in order to get the lining out. Then cut a new lining using the old pieces as your pattern, and reassemble the coat with your new lining.

The best way is to take it to a dry cleaners and have them professionally reline your coat. Most of these places are affordable and will do a good job
