Please see second problem in post #7. Thanks.
So I'm going to cosplauy as Tiana and I've made a start on the base skirt but I'm in a pickle over how to go about designing the second layer which is fundamentally the ivory coloured petals. Please see image
I can't decide whether to a)
design the petals individually and then attach them all to a waist band, b)
design the petals individually and then sew them to the base skirt overlap accordingly or c)
draft another large skirt and cut the petals out of it.
, I end up using A LOT of material and there's that risk of crinkling at the top meaning that the top of the skirt mightn't lay flat beneath my third layer which is the actual green lilly pads themselves
, I still end up using A LOT of material but I only really get one shot because if I mess up, I'll have holes all over my base skirt.
, I use less material obviously but I fear I'll screw up the measurements when trying to get everything to look even at the bottom.
I've seen others cosplays where it looks like one of both methods have been used but I'm still a little baffled. I had considered that the hardest part of this costume would be green section but I already know what I'm doing for that. Funny how things work out.
Anyway, I'm waffling. Any suggestions?
