Fabric is too stretchy

Kymstir | Posted in Fabric Guidance on

A friend of mine asked me to teach her how to sew, so we started out by selecting a pattern. Before we met again she had already purchased a knit fabric for the pattern. I don’t have any experience with knits but thought we could learn together. The pattern was for a sleeveless dress with princess seams in the bodice a waist line and an Aline skirt. The pattern called for the bodice to be lined but she didn’t want to do that and I thought we could make our own facings for the neck and armholes. We stay stitched all the seams neckline, armholes, princess seams sides and shoulders. We had the bodice together and sewed on the skirt and the waist line dropped about 3 inches from the weight of the skirt and the stretch in the fabric. With out starting over or deconstructing the entire project, does anyone have any suggestions on what can be done to the already constructed bodice to prevent it from stretching so much when the skirt is sewn on?
