Silk linings

I think I want to line the habit. And possibly the waistcoat, too. (The waistcoat is ivory worsted wool on the outside, and will be flatlined with cotton twill, like the habit bodice.) I will also be using the same fabrics as the riding habit to make an 18th c-infused modern winter jacket.


The question is, do I use habotai, crepe de chine, charmeuse, or something entirely different?
