I love this style of dress and wish to make my own. I consider myself intermediate level and have successfully made my own patterns before. However this style is confusing me – it appears to be just two pieces (front and back) with no obvious gathering. I have tried to look for similar patterns without success. Is the fabric cut on the bias and that creates these really cool ‘folds?’ Or is it done through veeery subtle ease stitching?
Also, to copy the asymmetrical hem style, would I cut the hem in a ( shape and the folds would create the triangle effect, or should I cut triangles? Any help or tips or links to similar patterns would be GREATLY appreciated! :)
