Dress help

Hey Friends. Im trying to make my own wedding dress. It's going to be fluffy with lots of tulle. But i want a sheer fabric over top. I want it to open in the front in an upside down v way. I have tried but the fabric seems to bunch at the top. Any tips or patterns? Any help is appreciated.

Any references to what you're trying to achieve. And is this the sort of split you mean?

For the sheer layer over the tulle try chiffon or organza.

A picture of what you mean by "bunching" might also help a lot

Yeah we need at least a sketch or some kind of reference to really help.

Put the picture through the Image Optimizer! Then you should be able to upload it without a problem.

Thanks so much. Sorry for the crude drawing of a skirt. I'm totally not an artist by any means. The red indicates the tulle and the black is the sheer top layer. As for the bunching, I had a hard time getting a good picture. The waistband is about an inch beneath the top of the sheer material. I can't get it to stay down.

It's both not cut correctly for the shape you are sewing it to and not enough fabric.

There are patterns for these kinds of shaped skirts, why are you not using one?

I appreciate the help. That's why I turned to you guys. I'm new to all of this and don't have a lot of experience. I had searched for patterns and couldn't find anything. So i was doing a trial and error run. Obviously had a lot of error.

I know my post came across harsh, but part of why I wanted you to stop and start over was because you said it was a wedding dress.
On your wedding day, you need to be comfortable and confident in what you are wearing, doesn't matter if it's a big to-do at the local country club or a Tuesday morning in judges chambers with only the court reporter as witness. Being happy with your clothing, whether it be a designer gown or just new jeans and sneakers, will be one less stressor on a day that has enough baggage attached to it.
