satin gown skirt is too soft, needs slip
For those who remember I needed helped with the princess bodice top fitting issue on my bridesmaids dresses, I now need help with the skirts!
We bought the satin (polyester) and it is very drapey and hangs too close to the body for the pattern style. In retrospect, I should have purchased a heavier satin, but am now stuck with this special order fabric and 3 more gowns to make.
For reference I’m using Butterick 4452 and making “E” view skirt. When you look at the pattern, it now looks like there is a slip under the skirt or it is very heavy satin.
So – without wanting to go to a bridal store and buy $60 slips, what can I do? I tried to find slip patterns on line with no luck, not on McCalls or Butterick on line sites.
I have to something because when the girl walks the satin clings to her legs! Help! Jackie
