You need a strong foundation for a house, and it goes the same with clothing, especially for when you're hanging an entirely different piece of fabric onto your clothing. If your base isn't strong enough, the whole piece will flop over! I decided to underline my bodice with muslin first--that way my dress will be able to hold up the skirt, the draping, and so on. Unless you're already using a very sturdy fabric, I'd seriously consider underlining it. Pin your foundation piece to your dress form. [NOTE: it'll be hard to drape without one of these--even my horridly lopsided dummy worked wonders!]
Now, onto the draping!
