Adding fabric panels to a dress
My concern is that it's not just a straight seam down the side. There's a crossroads of seams where the skirt starts and I'm worried it will make the fabric above it lay awkwardly. I'm not sure if it would be possible to add fabric the whole way down the side because of it....? I tried Googling and searching Instructables but couldn't really find what I was looking for.
I'll be using a cotton fabric to match the dress' material and was thinking of a navy base with a small floral pattern but am open to suggestions! I'm going to be hand-sewing this if it makes a difference.
*Edited to add close up of seam I'm wondering about. It crosses right under the buttons.
