    Lining can be difficult to cut properly. As you mentioned, it's typically not as dimensionally stable as the garment's outer fabric.

    I generally don't like cutting two layers of fabric at once, but I usually don't mind with lining.

    I prefer to use pattern weights and trace the pattern pieces onto the lining using tailor's chalk before cutting, and possibly even pin the two layers of lining together along the outer edges of the traced panels before cutting.

    This helps “lock everything into place” while cutting. 🙂
