Question about dress fitting

Confettidesigns's picture


I'm new to this site and am hoping for some help!


My client's dress has ribbon straps, an open back with a bra-like hook closing, and boning to the waist at the front and sides. The skirt is slightly more than a line, with no gathering or pleating at the waist seam.  The straps and back closing were too loose and were easily corrected.  The issue is at the waist.  

When the dress is on and zipped, skirt fabric rolls up at both sides at the waist line.  I assumed this indicated tightness around the hip, but cannot seem to get it to lie smooth.

any help would be appreciated!
