tv208 Should I add Bustle ties?

Postby majors » Fri Oct 17, 2014 2:04 pm

Good Afternoon!

I just completed the TV208 for the base skirt of my plaid dress. Should I add bustle ties on the inside to keep the fabric in place like I do with the late bustle skirts? The fabric does seem to move to the sides of the bustle.

Any thoughts?

Thank You!!! :bounce:

Yes, if you think the skirt would be better with the ties, they go ahead and add them. Especially for view B, which has the apron attached at the side seams.

Thank you for the super quick response, I'll send a photo of the underskirt after I get the silk pleats added. Thank you! :D :bounce: :D
