      The modern terms you're looking for are "bag lining" (where the lining
      is the garment made inside-out and then sewn to the outside) and "flat
      lining" (where lining and outer pieces are stitched together before the
      garment is constructed).

      I've got no evidence that flat lining was ever a medieval Japanese
      construction technique. The washing process would suggest otherwise
      (it's more work to disassemble a flat-lined garment completely).
