yes it is cut correctly, the lady who made the dress on the picture wont tell me how she modified a leila and ben peasant dress pattern (I have the same pattern)to make it twirly. If you look at all the peasant dress patterns out there they do not have the twirl in them they are more aline -ish I will find a pic and post to compare both dresses brb

This is a pretty easy fix.  What you need to do is place the pattern piece on the fold and then move out the bottom on an angle,  the neckline at the fold.  You are adding fabric at the bottom, but keeping the cut at the neckline.  To make it easy, just put the pattern piece on the fold, leaving a bunch of space on the other side.  Then put a pin in the pattern where it meets the fabric, then move the bottom edge out a good 8-10 inches.  This will add 16-20 inches to the bottom hem to each side, just make sure you are cutting the back and front the same (+40 inches of twirl!).   Now when you cut, measure the pattern for the length top to bottom along the fold.  Some measuring tapes have a hole in the top, so use that and swing it along as you cut so that the cut line meets up to where you positioned the bottom of the pattern.

Hope I've explained it clearly.  Undecided

I don't really understand why people don't share their "secrets"...it's not like this is rocket science.  I guess that is why I give away my tutorials and don't charge $15 for them at youcanmakethis.com. Wink
