DIY Satin Lined Hoodie

Because breakage is a huge issue for me, I have been looking at ways to always protect my curls. I would like to put satin lining in all my clothing with hoods. 

Has anyone tried this?  I can’t find anything online so hoping someone here might have some links/tips for lining your own hoodies.

    Great idea!  This is not for a satin lining and not for hoodies....but this might give you some ideas anyway.  It's for lining a knit hat with polar fleece for more warmth or to avoid itchiness from wool.  You should be able to just substitute the satin for the fleece.

    I got some awesome advice from someone on /r/curlyhair 

    “I don't have links but I am a tailor so I could have some helpful info. The only hard thing about doing this is that satin is a difficult fabric to work with. but it's not that hard, especially if don't by hand! I would recommend tracing each hood on a piece of paper and then using that as a pattern and make two halves the same way the hood would've been made. sew them together, fold the edges under about 1/4 of an inch and sew around it to the hood around the edges! it shouldn't take long and shouldn't be terribly hard. I wouldn't recommend pins because it'll cause a lot of holes in the fabric, but clips work!”

    You might want to also sew along the seam to tack the two pieces together so they don't separate.  Let us know how it goes!

    I wish I could do this. I’m envious of the person who can say, I am a tailor.

    I don't have much confidence in my ability to accomplish this haha

    But I wonder if a tailor would do it for a fee.
