See in this image how my front bodice is draped in pieces? This makes it so much easier to drape. If you run out of fabric in one direction, simply fold the raw edges of the first fabric over a new piece...it looks just like another one of the bodice folds. I had to do this on my dress on the left side, but you can't even see it! Continue playing with the body of the fabric. Sculpt it to the dress form at the sides and flatten it a little to make it more flattering. These for pieces took me at least 3 hours to drape in a way that pleased me.
