1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Skirt - alternatives to a dart? on: January 31, 2013 04:25:31 PM
Hi everyone,
Like the title says I'm looking for an alternative to putting a dart in a skirt, as I pinned my skirt to see what it looked like, it seems to distort the bottom on the skirt. It's about 4" too big in the waist, it's a UK20 but depending on the skirt and brand I usually wear a UK16 - UK20 so I'm a bit surprised with how big it is.

I haven't much experience at sewing, so I saw this [elastic directly sewn to the waistband tut] but it ended up pretty wavy. It's okay in a way, I wear cardigans most of the time so it hides the back, but don't think it'll last that long. I imagine this happened because of the amount put on to get it the right size.

Is shirring properly with elastic thread the only way to go or have I another choice?
I appreciate anyone taking the time to reply on this.
