Description

Here is a simple tulle skirt I made along with a chiffon long sleeved shirt. The skirt is simply a circle skirt with one layer of lining and two layers of tulle cut at a longer length. I made the shirt using a Burdastyle pattern I have that I modified a bit at the bodice and the sleeves.

Tulle skirts seem to be a big trend at the moment and I am quite fond of them. My version is not very full but I’d like to try making another that really embodies the essence of a tulle skirt.

      Thank you! tips, tips, tips…..I’ll say you have to be patient because the lightweightedness of it can be frustrating. Use a good scissors when cutting because it’s important to get smooth clean lines. have some stabilising fabric or bias tape of the same colour to use on the underside of it when stitching. The zig-zag stitch is your friend here especially when sewing it to elastic. I hope this helps!
