Basically, I’m making a dress. I made the bodice and then started on the skirt, where it all went wrong.
Almost every time I make a dress the skirt part ends up poofing out too much at the top, then slimming down at the bottom which doesn’t make for a flattering garment.
To avoid this, for this dress I gathered fabric twice the size of my waist measurement down to the actual size of my waist. I am using a light dress cotton that has a reasonable amount of drape. However the skirt looks terrible! It poofs out terribly and makes me look huge.
If I can avoid unpicking it, that would be great as it will take awhile. Does anyone have any advice on how I could fix this? If a picture would help, I can post one.
