Hello ! I would like to ask for advices. I am making a strapless empire line dress and I would like to overlay the bust part with tulle to add some textures. I gathered the tulle and placed it horizontally across the bust and around to the back. I want the gathered tulle to stay the way it is and I decided to hand tack it on random spots. It didn’t turn out as nice as I imagined and looks rather messy because of the tiny dots of threads i used for tacking.
Here’s a picture that shows how I want my tulle to be, just like the skirt part of the picture.
Do you have any suggestions on what I should do to make it neater? If I can’t tack it ramdomly, where exactly do I have to tack it? Or is there any other technique to make the tulle overlay stays?
Thank you in advance so much! :)
