At least I have gotten started and tried, but I am far from satisfied. I want the skirt to look like this vintage McCalls pattern from the 1940s. I am sort of on the right track, but it needs some work.
So feel free to make any comments you like and tell me what makes this look so "off"!
The back is sort of on the right track, it has the fitted part and the drape. Now that I compare the two, though, it looks like the sides should fall closer to my knees on the upper skirt? Or what?
The front looks truly god awful. Granted, this fabric has some drape, but probably not enough. But still! It has no flow to it at all!
Gross. This is why you make muslins, so your wedding dress doesn't make you cry!
