hi everyone :)
well, i have an idea i wanna make for a dress :) i’ve already drafted my pattern and it has lots of shapes on the bodice so naturally, i shifted all my darts into the all the seams. the problem is that my bodice was really time consuming to construct, and now i need to make a lining. i was thinking about just making a lining with simple waistline darts, but someone told me that that was a big no-no because the grain of the fabrics wont fall in the same direction. (especially because of my complicated shapes)
would it be okay to make a simple bodice with waistline darts? or would it get distorted like my friend said?
i wouldn’t mind reconstructing my original bodice if that means it will hang better..i was just trying to see if taking a short cut would be worth it
