Hello sewing enthusiasts!
I would describe myself at an intermediate skill level and have been sewing myself gowns/dresses for the last year and a half. Each project has improved tremendously from the one before and I am feeling stuck as to where to go with my next project. I have always looked through pictures and found elements that I like and tried to incorporate that into my next piece.
I am currently in love with Elie Saab and the flowing and voluminous skirts on many pieces, particularly seen here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/453385887459020015/
I draft my own patterns and some pieces Ive made similar to this involve a fitted bodice i’ve made from a sloper I drafted as well as a circle skirt that is attached at the waist. I have also tried to do a paneled bottom on a similar piece to try to achieve more volume on the bottom.
Any tips/techniques/patterns for how to achieve this flowing and voluminous bottom without adding significant bulk at the waist? Any recommendations including fabric choice etc would be tremendously helpful.
