hahaha so you are not sick of tulle  Cool

oooh i love tulle! it is so easy to sew...though it is a pain in the ass to cut it....

this skirt has 4 tulle layers....and the fabric has small blue and red hearts..

what do you think  Huh


1.   Measurements:
a.   for the waistband ->  decide where your band should sit…and measure from the upper the length of  
        your waistband – take the hip measurements (notice, that the upper measurement is smaller)
b.   the skirt (tulle + fabric) -> you should take this measurements after finishing the hem, keep in mind
         that you might have modifications on your waistband (called hem on my painting...i don't know how to
         call it)

2.   Now we sew the waistband…you have 4 parts to draw and cut! The parts should be curved lightly,  
        especially when you have a hollow back! Sew the sides together (fabric and lining), so you have 2 long        

3.   Now wright sides of those parts together and sew the sides and one length…the under seam stays  
         open….now turn it and iron it! Now you make a round and sew the open length! The part where you  
         will add your closure at the end has to be sewn together!

4.   Now measure the outline of your waistband hem and divide trough 4! Fold your fabric to a quarter and  
         mark your quarter measurement. Then decide how long your skirt should be…mark and cut…now you
        have a circle!! Repeat this step 4 with your tulle!

5.   Take your waistband and skirt and sew the hole wright sides together.


6.   Next step is to add the tulle parts….wrong side of skirt – sew tulle to waistband!



PS: Please don't mind asking me, because i am german speaking....there will be a lot of errors  Grin but i think every step will be clear while sewing!

EDIT:  after playing with paint for hours and uploading everthing i found this haha : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12439.0  maybe this helps you more than mine!

Your skirt is super cute!! Grin  Do you plan to wear it for a special occasion? Heck, maybe it's everyday wear now for all I know. (I'm SO out of the loop ... sigh.)

Oh, sorry to hear about your *ss, but your cutting the tulle was definitely worth it. Wink

While we have the gift of life, it seems to me that the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness.           Gilda Radner

That skirt is soooo cute, I was thinking of trying to make some like those but longer, but I am gonna stick to the purses for right now, and do them, I swear my eyes are bigger then my little hands can sew. I see soo much and can't sew it all. I love it like that,  Grin

that skirt is wonderful, great job with it! I haven't been daring enough to attempt tulle, but after seeing this, I really want to try. Anyway, great job!
