Tulle skirt/tyllihame

Hi!

A month ago I shared this DIY tulle skirt tutorial. Thanks for all the emails and questions you have been sending to me. I decided to share few extra tips for you all./ Kuukausi sitten jaoin tämän tee-se-itse tyllihame -ohjeen. Kiitos kaikista sähköposteista ja kysymyksistä, joita olette lähettäneet. Tässä vielä muutamia ekstra vinkkejä!

1. If you want your skirt to be really fluffy remember to use basic tulle (hard tulle) at least on the bottom layer. In this skirt I used only basic tulle./ Muhkeaan tyllihameeseen kannattaa käyttää perustylliä (kovaa tylliä), ainakin hameen alimpaan kerrokseen. Tämä hame on tehty käyttämällä ainoastaan perustylliä.

2. If you want your skirt to fall down nicely then use only bridal tulle/wedding tulle or veil tulle./ Kauniisti laskeutuvaan tyllihameeseen kannattaa käyttää ohuempaa morisustylliä tai huntutylliä.

One more time: DIY tulle skirt

Hi!

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.
