Ok so first off I am trying to make Pinkie Pies Gala Dress, I can't draw very well so this artist's design is the closest to what I'm trying to create:
I want to make my dress so that its open in the front but long on the sides and back, like this (forgive the crappy paint drawing):
I have this pattern for the top of the dress and inner skirt:
I'm using the alice dress.
My question is how do I do the longer skirt? Like what pattern would be a good pattern to use for it? Is this even possible? If its not please suggestions on what to do. And how would I make it so the outer skirt would poof out, will I need a petticoat? Do they sell a petticoat that will work for this type dress or will I need to make one?
Any help would be great please!
