So I'm making an pet en l'aire for the Big Ass Hat tea and my strategy is this "make a francaise gown with a mini skirt" and all was going swimmingly...but I have this giant fucking waist wrinkle. I just can't figure out how you get more fullness in the skirt circumfrence right in that spot. I do remember when I made my big francaise having to put in a dart, but I figured I was new and stupid and didn't know what I was doing.
Now I'm old and stupid?
HOW do you get fullness there? if I was just trying to fit an a-line dress I'd slit it up there and put in a 2" wedge. yada yada yada. But I don't WANT a dart there, it's totally obvious with my fabric.
Is it that I have a giant gut? I'd think the fact I have almost no hip-waist difference would be helping me here not hurting me. Piece in a 2" piece under the arm and move the seam forward? wear my chemise gown?
WTF people who make francaise gowns more often than me!
