I am working on a fitted wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and a ruffled organza skirt that begins at the hip (basically a fit & flare but with a huge poofy skirt). For the muslin I attached the boning (15 pcs) to the lining (fused). I also attached the bust cups to the lining. The fit is ok, but I am double thinking it and for aesthetic purposes I am wanting to attach the boning and cups to the muslin foundation which is behind the lining. That way when you look inside the dress, you can’t see the top stitching of bones and cups. My question is, will this be a smart move structure wise? Will it be ok to have, starting from skin outward, fused lining, muslin foundation with bones and cups attached, and then the satin which is underlined with cotton batiste. I want to do what is best for the structure of the gown so any advice as to where to attach the bones would help. Also, should I just tac the cups in place or complete sew them down? I’ve seen it done both ways.
