An 18th century style that looks like a skirt, and a formfitting, flat, and full-body dress with a flared waist and an open back like a blouse. The dress has a high neck and narrow hips so it may be called a “waist bloomer.”
So you don’t have to be a designer to create a flattering flat, flat bodice skirt. We have several ways you can make the most of a flat, flat skirt. All you need is a fabric, some pins and some fabric markers.
One method you can use that can be very flattering is to sew your skirt and blouse up and over each other, like this:
Make a buttonhole in your skirt using a 3/4″ seam allowance (I used a 7/4″ seam allowance). Sew the skirt and blouse down the back and along the hem. Cut and thread 2 1⁄2″ wide by 10″ long fabric. Attach the skirt over the hem or pin the skirt to the back of your dress, as shown here. Stitch the skirt on your dress. I made the legs of my skirt at the top and hemmed the legs in place to create a hemline. I then pinned both skirts together at the waist.
This flat skirt could be made with 3/4″ seams between the skirt and the blouse or a 4 1⁄2″ seam allowance.
Another example is to join your blouse and skirt. This is the best way to create an illusion of curves. We will use a 4 1⁄2″ seam line. Using 2 1⁄2″ wide and 10″ long fabric (see the fabric markers below), cut your blouse and skirt up and over each other as shown here. Sew the legs of your skirt on in place. I also attached the legs with 1⁄2″ wide fabric pins.
I’m using a 2 1⁄2″ seam line.
How do the skirts look on you?

The advice was:
