My first petticoat in all its poofiness (sort of) and I've just noticed the bottom tier is a bit wonky lol - will fix.

Based on this tutorial:

Looks amazing! and the great thing about petticoats is that once you put it on and throw a dress on top, all wonkiness disapears, seriously, you should see some of the ones I've done  Wink

What kind of fabric did you use? and how much did you use?  Just cuz this is a different style than the one's I've done and I really like it.

Thanks Smiley

Material - I'm not sure what it is - its like tulle but softer and it frays (when I got it it was advertised as 'fairy floss' - I think its the same stuff used in the Sugardale tute), but it was nice to sew and went nicely through my overlocker.

How much - I have no idea lol, the first tier is 66"ish x 5", 2nd 132" x 5" & 3rd 264" x 6"



There is method in my madness....

It may be crinoline, which is more comfortable than tulle and frays.
