RE: Sewing a puffy dress

I think what you are describing is a 'goured' dress/skirt. I uses several, 6-8, tapered pieces of material. They are basically triangle shaped with the points sliced off and put into the waistband, making the bottom of the skirt larger, and NOT having it bunch up at the waist. Do a search for goured skirts .Good luck, Salena

RE: spell check!!

Skirt is spelled, 'gored'.
Sorry, Salena
