Happy New Year to you all!
I have a wall with a few dips in it that needs levelling off, with a
skim coat of plaster being the last stage.
Could I level this by scratching the old surface, making it good,
slapping on some PVA and then a coat or 2 of undercoat plaster in the
dips to level it off?
Would the undercoat stick sufficiently to the wall?
Will I have to undercoat over the whole wall, not just the dips?
Thanks very much in advance for any replies given.

We have a plasterer friend who says it's not worth doing that 'cos
you'll still end up with unevenness and it takes too long from a
labour = time point of view, unless you're doing it yerself of course.
If you're skimming the whole wall afterwards anyway he'd go for the
dob'n'dab plasterboard way 'cos it takes less time.
I'd just stick with the uneven walls :)
