I’m working on a dress that has a drawstring waist. The tie runs through a casing on the inside of the dress and comes out through two button holes in the front. The casing creates the waist, since the bodice and skirt are all one piece, with no waist seam. I’ve ended up lining the dress through the body because the fabric ended up a bit see-through. So far I’ve just attached the lining at the armholes, shoulders, and neck and it’s hanging loose through the dress.
However, now I’m not sure how to handle the casing, which is my last step. I’m thinking that I should sew the casing to the self, and then treat it as if it was a waist band for the lining, cutting the lining at the waist and sewing the bodice and skirt lining in separately on either side of the casing. I hope I’ve explained this right! Does anyone know if this would be the right course of action, or have suggestions for better ways of handling this? My concern is have the lining bunching in funny ways or riding up inside the dress when the draw string is tightened.
