Ok, I'm making a practice dress out of muslin and I'm already stuck. I know personal preference plays a part in this, so if you are willing to share your formula for where the bodice should end and the skirt should begin, I would really appreciate it. What I would like to know is, would it be ok to start the waist seam at the hip bone? If I want it to end in a "V" in the middle, how many inches below the hip bone should it be? My daughter is neither short nor long waisted, if that makes a difference.
