If I do this and then I'm not happy with the width can I add the gores later?

So hearing you! The festival is all weekend and it is going to be a yearly thing plus we have other dress ups in the village (carnivale, Halloween etc) so hoping I can get lots of wear out of it @emmavmorgan

Yes you could add the gores later but remember the wider you make the skirt the more hemming you will have to do :hohoho:
