I am wrapping up the coat this week. I am 'spoiling' the lining rotten with a bias-turned hem so the bottom of the lining will lay perfectly smooth!
This is just one little trick I like to do with single bias facing to lend a nice finish with interesting detail (click on images for larger view):
I treated the brocade lining hem with a single bias of silk organza. I had plenty of scrap around to create it in the same red to match the coat. That way, if the bottom of the lining hem flips with movement, it will blend nicely with the coat.
The bottom of the lining hem is 1/2" above that of the coat (click on images for larger view):
