Here goes long post WARNING with lots of pictures(sorry about the size!)
I'm making a victorian outfit, I have a petticoat so far and a bodice mock up...
Petticoat front and back
Bodice front and back
fabric for skirt
A corset I have that doesn't fit my bust(a bit too big)
And my boots!!
So I need help with the red skirt and the bodice, I want a longer length with a pleated flounce, like the images below...
I know I need to redraft my bodice pattern and the front, side front are simple but the side back and centre back I'm having problems with. I just can't work out how to do the pleated back part?
Also with my red skirt, my pattern is flat at the front that widens at the bottom and pleated at the back but it seems to hold the fullness of my petticoat in, is this supposed to happen?
Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help!
I also have another post about my second costume, hehe
