Need Help – Dress Bodice on Diagonal
I am new to this forum. I am trying to make a gown with a empire line that is cut on the diagonal and the bodice is strapless with princess seaming. I am using a crepe backed satin and am wondering if I need to cut the side bodice pieces on the bias and the center panel on the straight of grain? Any ideas out there? Also, any suggestions on rouching? Straight of grain or bias? I want it to cover the bodice of this dress after I get the satin fitted properly but want the rouching to be tight not billowy.
