I have made a skirt that is cut on the bias and although it fits well, it just doesn’t have the “volume” that I want (I know that is the nature of the bias). It needs to have more “presence”. I have seen some skirts with sort of abstract pieces of fabric tucked and gathered and tacked on to skirts and thought I would google that idea but I don’t know what it’s called.
Does anyone out there know a designer who does this or where I might look? I tried smocking and origami and came up with nothing that appealed to me or looked current.
I have thought about doing some flounces or ruffles but that seems kind of predictable.
Thanks for your ideas,
