Adjusting Retro Cherry Dress

So... Without A Crinoline.... I think the full circle skirt (the back piece -in black here) looks rather wilty:

I like it With A Crinoline. More body full, and fun to spin around in:

The Problem is that the front piece (white cherry fabric here) is not full at all. In fact it's rather fitted all the down through the skirt portion:

Thus, it doesn't drape over the Crinoline properly and looks all Wrinkly:

So I added two godets starting at where the darts end to the hem, for better fullness:

YAY! Now I'm ready to party like it's 1959!

  1. I am in love with this dress. And the fact that it's made from cherries.
