Tulle skirt for women/ Tyllihame naiselle

I got an nice email where women was asking if she is crazy, but she wants to have a tulle skirt. Just the same kind of as her daughter has. I told her: Absolutely you can!! Why not?  If you just choose the right kind of tulle (veil or bridal) you can look great! Or what you think about it? Is tulle skirt more for little girls.

I think is all about the attitude! You don´t need to look like a princess or a bride if you choose your shirt and accessories well. 

This tulle skirt is made with this pattern: Click As you can see the same pattern goes easily with kids and women´s tulle skirt. 



For this tulle skirt I multiplied waist measure by three.



And with this skirt I multiplied waist measure ONLY BY TWO!! So it wont be so fluffy.

One more time: DIY tulle skirt


I decided to share these tips one more time. I think this is easy and quick way to make a simple tulle skirt.

1. First you need to measure your waist. Then multiply your waist measure by three or four. That´s the number how wide your tulle should be if you want your skirt to be really fluffy. For example kids skirt waist measure is 52cm x 3 = 156cm (1,56 meters). So your tulle needs to be at least 1,6 meters wide. 

2. Next cut your tulle into single layers. In this skirt I used two layers of basic tulle and two layers of bridal tulle. Then it´s time to start pleading all the tulle layers like this. Leave 5-6 cm between each folding.Image

3. Now sew all the tulle layers one by one. Use the widest stitch and leave the other end open. Don´t tight it off.


4. Gather it up by pulling the other string carefully. Do the same thing to all your tulle layers.


5. Now you should have all your tulle layers gathered up so you can sew all layers together. Image

6.Now your tulle layers are all sewed together and it looks like a skirt.Image

7.You´ll need two satin ribbons to finish the skirt. Sew one on each side of the skirt.



8. Skirt is ready!






a tiny dress

My friend is having a baby girl in next month. So I decided to make tiny unique dress for the baby. I’ve made one dress for a girl earlier in last year during my I Love dresses -project (twelve unique dresses during the year 2011 one dress each month). It was my third (3/12) dress M drop



I decided to use the same pattern in this dress what I have used with M drop dress. This time I used velvet tricot.


You can basically draw patterns from any kids dress.




I sewed shoulder seams together




I stitch trough the arm holes




Then I attached the upper part to the lower part of the dress


I used a pearl instead of a zipper.



Tadaa! The dress is ready!


To make it unique it needs some decoration. You will see the result picture when the baby is born 🙂
