I'm making a knee length skirt from an old pleated skirt thats too small (I'm cutting off the waistband and making a new one.)
And I wanted to add black tulle so its showing at the bottom (its gonna be longer than the skirt by less than an inch)...and I was wondering how I would sew the tulle on so that it would be kinda ruffled looking and not just straight across the skirt???

measure the length you want it... and how wide around it needs to be... then depending on how poofy you want it to be, multiply the measurement of how wide you want it to be by 2 or 3.. or more if desired to be more poofy. sew all the tooling pieces together at the sides, then machine baste a row of stitching 1/2" from the top edge, machine baste a 2nd row of stitching 1/4" above the other row. gather till it fits to where you are attatching it. and then sew it on. good luck! hope this helped!
