I made the seamed dress pattern (http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/seamed-dress-082012) for a bridesmaid dress.
The problem is, I not so brilliantly used a heavy metallic linen. It looks lovely, but the front panel of the skirt creases when I sit, and I know I will be in lots of pictures, so this is a problem. Are there any creative ideas for ways to solve this? ripping out the skirt and doing an underlining of some sort? the dress is fully lined in a basic slippery lining fabric. Or does anyone have thoughts on a sheer overlay that won’t look strange?
