Tulle skirts and ballerina glam go hand in hand, BUT tulle skirts aren’t just for ballerinas. This twirly tulle skirt sewing pattern gorgeousness is full and fabulous and a perfect addition to any skirt-lovers’ wardrobe.
The tulle skirt sewing pattern offers two fullness options which comes down to layers! With just two layers of tulle, you will have a slightly subtler burst of glam, with your lining peeping through. With three layers of tulle, you can expect epic glam!
The beauty of this skirt lies in how versatile it is! Dress this frothy number up with heels, a fitted top, and some bling for an evening out. Go grungy and throw on some tights, boots, and a Kingston denim jacket. Or go somewhere in the middle, and style your tulle skirt with a jumper and a pair of sneakers!
Twirly, Tulle-y Glam
Skill Level – Beginner
Sizes – Pattern includes ladies’ sizes XXS to 5XL. See the size chart in the gallery above.
Options – Two fullness preferences
Ideas – Wear a three-layered tulle skirt UNDER a full circle skirt (like the Betty freebie) for maximum petticoat magnificence.
Add a layer of ribbon to the bottom of your skirt for some extra detailing. And remember – there’s no such thing as too much glitter… ?
Fabrics – The lining is suitable for any light- to medium-weight wovens, such as habotai (silk or polyester), poly anti-static lining, cotton, quilting cotton, satin, duchess satin, crepe satin, cotton drill, cotton lawn, and taffeta.
The skirt part is suitable for light-weight wovens such as tulle, bridal tulle, chiffon, georgette, and organza.
*While you can use other fabrics such as chiffon or other light-weight wovens, the layers including these are referenced as “tulle” throughout the tutorial. Please note this is referring to these top two or three layers of gathered light weight fabric and does not mean you need to use tulle. Feel free to use whichever light weight fabric you would prefer for these layers!
If you use a fabric with a print, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.
See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
