      What Cat said about the lining, but make it a tiny bit smaller than
      the outside fabric. If there are side seams, make the lining seam
      allowance about 1/8" bigger than the outside, maybe only about
      1/16". You want it just enough smaller to put some tension on the
      edges so they don't pooch out.
