I'm fairly new to Craftster - i've been lurking around for a couple of weeks now and i've finally built up enough courage to start my first thread about my very first sewing project!
My close friend is marrying in May, and i wanted to wear a fabulous dress, but one that will flatter my larger-than-average figure.
I'm going to be making McCalls pattern 4286
with a shrug (to cover my hideously fat arms) - McCalls pattern 5006
(the long sleeved one with the ties in front).
What I want to ask though - I would like to have a net skirt underneath the dress to 'poof' it out a bit and make it a bit more 1950s-esque (but still modern...) ....does anyone have any hints or tips about how to do this?
I've got some lovely blue tulle to match the fabric for the dress but i've been staring at it for half an hour now and nothing has come to me
Any ideas you have would be very welcome
