Hello out there–this is my first post in Threads although I do lurk around here frequently.
I have been sewing off and on for years so my skill level never seems to change much, so I am seeking info here.
The current project is a simple linen dress, vneck pull on, empire waist, pull on. I have been thinking about how to finish the skirt seams (no serger) without adding any extra stiffness to the skirt–there are three seams in the skirt. And that started me thinking about the stiffness of the skirt in general.
So my questions is: should I cut the skirt on the bias? The fabric is a mid-weight linen (so yummy!) Would that make it softer or would it just make the seam stiffness problem even more pronounced?
Thanks for any thoughts you might share.
