This is how I make and attatch a net skirt to a lycra leotard base or on a pre-made band.
I am assuming that you already have your base to sew on the net.
If you are working with a leotard base, I very strongly recommend that you cut the crotch seam open for easier stitching.
Due to the colour fabric I used for my base leotard, I had to use alternating colours of net. You don’t need to do this.
This is not too hard to make, just fiddly.
Nylon net (tulle), thread.
