I’m making a girl’s size 6 dress from a pattern I bought in 1983. It’s a Simplicity Cinderella pattern. The skirt has 5 layers: 4 polyester organza and a lining of polyester satin. I’m struggling to baste the layers together partly because the organza is so slippery. The bodice has a basque waist, so the skirt pieces have a point in the front. The circumference of the skirt is wide before gathering. I used 12+ yards of ribbon and lace trim around the hems. It’ll be just a cloud of a dress if I ever get skirt attached to bodice!
Any advice on how to do this accurately would be so helpful.
