Hi everyone! I'm new here. I was wondering if anyone can give me a bit of advice. I just made my first hippie skirt, which I love, except for one problem. I made the drawstring (but didn't cut the fabric on the bias) and there is absolutely NO give. So if I tie it tight enough to stay up, it cuts into me. I really don't like having anything tight around my waist or hips at all. My question is, does cutting the fabric on the bias make a HUGE difference, or would it be a good idea to add a bit of elastic to the back to create more give?
