shap of the gore, but since it is going into two straight seams the
gore could be an isocelies triangle.
I do not find them so easy to insert when they are placed in front
and back without a CF or CB seam. The Bias makes for beautiful drape
and a "swishy" skirt.
Even so, one has to be very careful at the very top to get everything
lined up just right. I find hand sewing give me much more control.
I looked high and low for a good web site to help me when doing gores
for the first time and there is some very bad advise out there. I
guess I should make up a page on my site, since I had so much trouble.
