I need some information on creating a V design yoke on my front skirt pattern.
I created a pattern piece from my skirt front. I drew a line starting about 3 1/2 ” down from my centre front waist towards the other end of the skirt pattern and near the end curved the line downwards. I then place the curved line on the fold material and cut it out and spread it open, it look like the v design. I then cut out the yoke on my pattern skirt front. I then placed the yoke on the skirt waist and pinned it. The only problem is that when I had sewn it, pressed it, trimmed it, etc. The v yoke did not lay flat on the skirt as it should. I had to keep pulling the skirt part down to try and flatten the yoke piece. I showed my teacher and she said that I have incorrect placed the yoke design wrong. She said I have started from the back curved line of the front skirt and then when I came to the centre front, then curve the line downwards. I tried several tissues doing this but it just is not coming out looking like a V design. Can anybody give me some insight into what I may doing wrong?
The picture below is kind of like the one I am trying to create. The bottom of my skirt does not have gathers and the yoke part attached to the bottom part is a more V shape. My problem as I stated above is that the V in the middle part does not lay flat and the skirt part sewn to it, trys to ride up towards it.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
