I’m sort of a beginner so I’m not good enough to start making my own stuff yet, but I’d like to make a dress or a skirt that’s suitable for casual social dancing. I do a lot of social dancing like waltz, foxtrot etc. where i do a lot of gentle as well as fast spins and turns. Ideally, I want a skirt or dress that looks casual, but has flares just about enough; I’ve found that stretchy rayon A-line skirts tend to flare up too much and show underwear, whereas a lot of other material don’t spin well. Also, dress and skirts patterns are often the wrong style for dancing, and the rest tend to look like performance dancing outfits. So I’m sort of at a loss of which pattern and what material is best. Can anybody recommend a good pattern for this sort of outfit? Thanks.
Oh, and most range from the years 2010-2013.
