I'm working on a new costume for the upcoming ren faire in my state and I'm have trouble with this pattern. http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=3623
I want to attach the corset/vest to the skirt and make it one a one piece kirtle. The corset is very pointed in the front and the back and curved on the lower edges. I think if I attach the skirt now, it's going to sit up on my waist too much. If I add more of a straight edge to the sides and take away the points on the front & back, would it be easier to attach the skirt? I'm planning on making a sample in muslin first, in case it doesn't work out right.
Thanks for your help!
