Bagged lining question

I have a real stumper here (for me). I just bought a great jacket for "reference material"; it is made of a fabric that looks like layers of thread quilted in place. The lining is cotton tulle. I'm looking over this lining, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how they bagged this thing....there is no handwork visible anywere, all the seams are interior....it looks like it was sewn with a machine from the innards of the thing and the machine went "poof" and disappeared. There is, again, no place I can find where this could have been turned. Any ideas how this was done?

Is there machine stitching in one of the sleeves? If not, perhaps it was all machine sewn except only a small portion at the lining sewn to hem allowance. I've seen them machine sewn in except for 5-6", then hand sewn and the lining ease fold drops down over to hide it.

Liz, I checked that...this is a real baffler. The only solution I can think of is that the opening is in the outer shell. The fabric has so much texture, it is hard to tell! I'm still looking!
