You know what I never got around to finishing anything with tabs around the
waist. : ) However, in PoF there is a gown on pgs 47, 113, 114 worn by the
Pfalzgrafin that does have the skirt attached and tabs. The skirt was
cartridge pleated and I imagine the the tabs were stitched to the bodice
first or sewn on in a sandwich between the bodice edge and the skirt.
