Linings are generally a functional part of a garment. They are used variously to maintain the shape of a garment, to improve the hang and comfort by allowing it to slide over other garment.

Linings are joined to main garment by sewing and for this normal sewing machines are enough. The method of attaching lining to outer garments depends on the garment type and on whether it is fully or partially bagged out.

Interlinings are used to support, reinforced control the shape of some areas of garments such as collars, cuffs, waist bands, facings and the front of coats. They are attached by fusing.
