I started working on a Christian Dior dress which is fully underlined and lined and I thought that it will be interesting for you to see how to sew with underlining, what the underlining fabric is, how to sew the underlining to the main fashion fabric and how to attach facings to the underlining to make the stitching invisible. These are all haute couture sewing techniques. Keep in mind that the underlining takes extra time, and it adds extra layer to your garment. The video doesn't show that after you attach the facings to the underlining, you will continue with construction and eventually attach the lining to cover all seams you don't want to see.

Enjoy the video!
