Hi everybody, i really need more help. I want to make a petticoat to put under my prom dress. I want a knee high petticoat. There's just one problem, i can't find black tulle so i was wondering. Could i make a petticoat with any fabric?Huh
And also does anyone know a tutorial for petticoats, or would like to make one for me?? Embarrassed (to much to ask isn't it?).
I am a beginner, i have some sewing experience...
Please help?Huh

You can use any color tulle and sandwich it between a lining fabric (so you don't have scratchy legs) and any kind of shell fabric you want (preferably something smooth and shiny so it doesn't stick to the inside of your dress).  What does your prom dress look like? A description or pic is fine (specifically where the the waistline hits, i.e. where you'll be wearing the petticoat (on your hips or at your natural waist). With that info, I will be able to give you a basic tute Smiley

Please please help me, i dont know how to make a petticoat so it's even harder for me sandwich it with some more fabric, i dont understand that really well...
Also, how many yards of the lining fabric will i need to buy???
Can i make a tutu like this one??

Thank you for the support.

This is a great tute - DivastarMirna, I recommend following this one and filling in the gaps with the linked Craftster tutes from Starla.. good luck! If you run into any specific questions, let me know. And yes, you can cover the crinoline with black lining fabric when you're done to achieve that effect.

Hi everybody thanks for everything!! love u.
i tried to make the petticoat with this tut:
http://home.scarlet.be/fenicia/tutoral/petticoat/petticoate.htm
But i only used 3 lengths of fabric, look at it. I used some sheets to make it look:

front

http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o54/DivastarMirna/S1030705.jpg
back

What do you think??
I wanted a little bit fuller, is it bcuz i used fabric, or is it cuz of the strips being to wide and not so long. The last strip is 4 yards long, should be longer?? and less wide?Huh?
sorry 4 so many questions, PrincessAmanda i am going to try this tut.

Thank you again Smiley

You will need the following tute to make a circle skirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12439.0








If you use less length in the strips, then you will have a smaller petticoat. Try cutting the fabric length to 5 yards instead of 8 yards, that will probably give you the fullness you desire.
