after I made the first one ,I made another one using my way ,it is much easier and neater to not sew the bodice together at the waist when putting the skirt on,then you can adjust the gathers as needed,then aline the hem and sew alittle up the back or leave open and attatch Velcro.
it fit well and directions were clear. I will make another one soon
