Hi, I’m totally new here and only slightly less new to sewing, but I’m in love with the skirt of Kayla’s dress from this dance on So You Think You Can Dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u97XaazEno.
It looks to me like it has sort of triangular pieces of fabric sewn in with the points starting around her thigh, like the opposite of a dart. Is there a term for that style of dress, and are there other ways to achieve that sort of look? Also, any suggestions on types of fabric to get that flowiness would be great. Even if I can’t make it yet, it would be something to work towards!
