Hello all! As my local convention creeps around the corner I am trying to finish up my cosplay of Sophitia. What I am stuck on (and have had to re-do 3 times) is the skirt portion of her toga.
What I am stuck on is how to get the "flared" look and feel of her skirt. When I spin or move around, I want it to flounce a little bit. Reference photos are below and you can check out my profile to see my progress on it.
My only idea was to use an elastic waistband like I would with a lolita skirt to gather it, and then sew the two together.
Any other ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
