One happy princess

Do you remember this Princess skirt? Well after that skirt I decided to do few more skirts because I had so many leftover fabrics from my other dresses. 

And today I got some pictures from one happy princess. I don´t know her but she definitely knows how to rock this skirt!

Lulu´s new life part.2

Do you still remember when I told you about this Lulu wedding dress and the changes I was going to do for the dress?

Image

Well I separated the bodice and the skirt. I wanted to learn how to make this kind of a skirt. Once again I´m not a professional seamstress so basically I learn new things and techniques by doing.

Image

First I cut tulle into different size pieces. Then I started sewing them back to the skirt using biggest pieces for the bottom layers.

Image

I think it turn out pretty well.

Image

I borrowed my friend for this photo to help me see how it works over a real person. In next part I´ll tell you how the bodice part changed in this “Lulu´s new life -project”.

Lulu´s new life

We had a long day at the photo shoots on sunday and now we´re just waiting to see the pictures. Thanks to my beautiful models Laura, Malla&Linda. Huge thanks to hair and make-up team Keiku and Priscilla/ HiusTrendi. And thank you Sanna for taking pictures ❤

In the meanwhile I´m going to speak in front of an audience about my dream come true. (I Love dresses). I´m also going to speak about reusing old clothes and giving them a new “life”. For example this jeany´s dress was made out of a pair of old jeans.

Making of tulle skirt part.3

Hi!

Sorry I haven´t finished earlier my making of tulle skirt tutorial. I have been working and organizing  my next photo shoot session. Which is by the end of this week 🙂

But now here comes the final tutorial part and some pictures from my skirt.

Remember to read first part.1 and part.2

Now you should have all your single tulle layers gathered and it´s time to start sewing them together. 

You need a piece of a lining fabric in size of your waist measure. Then pin one tulle layer on the other side of lining fabric like this. Then sew it.Image

 Add another layer on the other side of the lining fabric. Continue like this until all your tulle layers are attached to the lining fabric.
Image
 
Now you should have all your tulle layers sewed together into a lining fabric. Fold the lining fabric from the middle. Now you have all the tulle layers hanging down between the lining fabric. Then you need a satin ribbon to cover the lining fabric.
Image
And the last thing you need to finish your skirt is a button or a press stud. I used them both.
ImageFinalize your skirt . Cut and shape the hem as you want and you are ready to go outside 🙂

Making of tulle skirt part 2.

You can find making of tulle skirt part 1. from here

Now you should have lots of tulle so we can start cutting and sewing it into a skirt.

I have six meters of wedding tulle and two meters of basic tulle. I also have a 1,5 meters long satin ribbon and some lining fabric.

Now we need to cut all the tulle into single layers. I`m going to sew each layer separately. It´ll take some extra time but I promise in the end it´ll be worth it.

My waist measure was 68 cm. And I multiplied it by three so the measure is 204 cm. So I need to cut my 6 meters wedding tulle into three pieces.

After you have cut your tulle is time to start pleading it. Use pins and leave some space between the foldings.Image

 

Then it´s time to sew each layer one by one. Use widest stitch from your sewing machine.   Leave the other end open don´t tight it off. Image 

 

Then it´s time to gather it up by pulling the string carefully.

Image

 

Do the same thing to all your tulle layers. Will continue later on.. And please ask or send me email: you.love.dresses@gmail.com
