I have not worn a tulle skirt since I was trained in classic ballet, modern jazz & tap many years ago. I have been asked to volunteer in a children's ballet class soon & decided to sew my own ballet skirt. I was surprised by the selection & vibrant colour of the tulle. After I sewed my ballet skirt I layed it on top of the cotton skirt I had already started to sew and I thought how pretty it looked together. I decided to add it to the outer layer instead of the usual inside. This is my first tulle skirt design so I thought I would share it with you!
I attached the gathered tulle on to the waist band of the skirt and folded over to sew. I used my pinking shears to trim excess fabric to keep the bulk around the waist down.
I purposely did not add too much tulle as I wanted it too look like an overlay & not a ballet skirt!
