Hi jeffery, how does one determine the amount of ease that should go into the lining compared to the measurement used to cut the cloth? the books say there should be plenty of ease in the lining as it doesnt strecth compared to cloth but what are the rules? I just cant seem to find any information about this! thanks!

Brendan- there are no hard and fast rules- every tailor uses his own method, depending on how the cloth was worked up. Best to find someone to show you.
