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.

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.

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.

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 a tulle skirt part.1

First I got to say that there´s many ways to make a tulle skirt. So I´m not saying my tutorial is the one and only way to do it 🙂 

Image

 

This tulle skirt has one layer of basic tulle and three layers of wedding tulle. There´s also separate underskirt made out of lining fabric. 

Here we go.

First you need to measure your waist.

You can also use a satin ribbon and ruler if you don´t have measure tape.

Then multiply your waist measure by four. That´s the number how wide your tulle should be if you want your skirt to be really fluffy. I multiplied my own waist measure only by three so 68 cm x 3 = 204 cm (2,04 meters). And then add the amount of your tulle layers 2,04 m x 3= 6,12 m. 

So I bought about six meters of bridal tulle and two meters of basic tulle. Now go to shopping to your local fabric store and we´ll continue later.

I bought my material from Eurokangas.
