I hope all is well as we approach the end of April. Look at that, 1/3 of the year has gone. I just wanted to show you the tulle skirt I made week before last as one of my birthday wear options. Tulle skirts seem to be a big trend at the moment and I really love how they look. Of course it's difficult to find an occasion to wear such a skirt but hey you never know, something could pop up. My version though is a scaled down more publicly acceptable version.
I attended a fashion show called"All things tulle" for the launch of a line of Tulle skirts by a stylist named Elizabeth Horell and a store called Sapodillas in Trinidad. I had somewhere to wear my skirt! I paired it with a chiffon black long sleeved shirt I made some time ago.
The tulle skirt was self drafted and is simply a circle skirt with one lining layer and two layers of tulle cut at a longer length.....I wish I had more tulle! I'll have to try it again with a bit more yards of tulle and also with a different pattern/ style. The skirt has an elasticised waistband in black using some lovely leftover ponte knit fabric.
The black chiffon shirt is partially self drafted as I did the sleeves and the bodice different from the original Burdastyle pattern I had. I really needed the pattern for the collar.
Have any of you made a tulle skirt or intends to make one? Tulle seems to be quite miserable to work with as it's so light and it's full of tiny tiny holes. The good thing though is that there is no need for hemming however one must cut very straight lines for a perfect look.
Clearly my skirt is a bit wrinkly but last time I ironed tulle it melted away so I don't know what to do about that.
Hope you like it and God bless y'all !
