Decided to line the Fire in twill. I think one of the things I like best about the Rohan was the weight and drape of it so...

Decided i wanted red twill, so it would look cool when viewed through the slits. Then decided I didn't want to dye it myself and risk having a red Victorian corset so I went to Hancocks. They had a pretty bright red twill and it was on sale and everything - yay. Also got threads and an invisible zipper, although they didn't have orange so the zipper will be red. Oh well, this is why we use invisible zippers, right. I mean, is there another reason?

Also stopped at Michaels for fabric paint... more on that later.

Twill is in the wash and I'm heading back to my room to start cutting out. :>

Oo! I love the idea of lining it in red!

Just wanted to pass along a tip I've heard: You can always use nail polish to match an invisible zipper head, if the exact color you want isn't available. A handy tip, considering how much I love invisible zippers and the number of times I've come away from the Coats and Clark rack disappointed . . .

Can't wait to see how this progresses! You're really tempting me back into the fantasy mojo!

Oh nice tip - thanks! Of course creamy orange isn't exactly a hot nail color right now... :>
