    Question Lined in the same print

    Hi, everyone

    I wonder what's the exact meaning of "lined in the same print" in the following sentence.

    "I wore a navy blue and pink striped dress, with a navy wool cape lined in the same print."

    Is it tries to indicate that the pattern on the cape is the same with the dress? (the same pink-colored stripe?) Is so, is this pattern on both sides of cape or just one? If is just on the one side, is the inner one or the outer one?

    Thank you for taking a look :)

    The cape has a lining on the inside. This lining is made of the same fabric as the striped dress.

    Thank you for answering and helping me, I'm too careless to ignore such important meaning of this expression.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". You had already clicked on the "Thank" button on a helpful post. That is enough.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
