aren't they like a circle piece of fabric so there's more fabric at the bottom and less at the top near the dress base

im not sure if you can see from that link picture above or the one that i uploaded (that looks like a 2yr made it)



but you cut the pattern to fit snugly around the waist and knee then the back half you cut the train very long and wide



then the front fits snugly around the waist and knee and is up higher but you can make it wide at the front bottom just not too long unless you want to drag the front as well
