A cheap and easy way to make fabric people won't believe you made...
Recently while working on a special Burdastyle project I stumbled upon some of the most beautiful fabric I had ever seen!
Rows of scalloped tulle sewn together in layers to create this amazing scale-like illusion...I _had_ to have it and for half off of $40 a yd, I could sacrifice eating if it meant I could have just one yard! With my one yard of this multicolored fabric I completed a dress, and learned how to make this on my own in a snap. Now I am sharing it with you so that you can spend that hard earned craft money on zippers and such instead!
As much tulle as you can handle, a resist, thread, and scissors
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
