Tulle skirts are a summer staple, and for good reason. They’re delicate but flattering, and they come in all sorts of colors and styles. In this blog post, we’ll teach you how to make a tulle skirt yourself—from start to finish. You’ll learn about the different types of tulle, how to measure for your skirt, and how to sew it together. By the end, you’ll have a beautiful tulle skirt of your very own!
How to Make a Tulle Skirt
If you’re looking for a pretty and feminine way to dress up an outfit, a tulle skirt is perfect. This type of skirt is made from delicate fabric that’s woven in a mesh-like pattern. The beauty of this skirt is that it can be created in just minutes using basic sewing supplies. Here’s how to make a tulle skirt:
1. Measure the length of your desired tulle skirt and cut the fabric accordingly. You’ll need two pieces of tulle – one shorter piece and one longer piece.
2. Sew the two pieces of fabric together along one edge, making sure to leave a 1-inch seam allowance all around. Clip the excess fabric away from the seam allowances.
3. Turn the tulle skirt right side out and press down firmly with a hot iron to ensure that it’s nicely pressed and lays flat.
4. Now it’s time to start sewin’! Sew the short piece of tulle to either side of the long piece, making sure not to stretch or pull too tight on the fabrics (you want them to be slightly loose). Once you’ve sewn each side, turn them right side out again and press very well before cutting off any excess tulle material.
5. Next, sew one end of your ribbon belt into a knot so that it forms an “x” shape (see photo above). Make sure that both ends of your ribbon are long enough so that they reach all the way down the sides of your skirt.
6. Now it’s time to add your finishing touches! Clip off any excess tulle fabric at the bottom of your skirt, then hem the edge of the belt using a Sewing Machine or by hand. Finally, tie a pretty bow at the top of each side of your skirt.
Tips for Making a Tulle Skirt
If you’re looking for a super-durable tulle skirt, one that you can wear multiple times before it starts to show wear, then you might want to opt for a stiffer tulle. This type of tulle is less likely to bag and fray when worn, making it the perfect choice if you’re looking for a polished look.
To make sure your tulle skirt lasts as long as possible, be sure to take care when washing it. Machine-wash on cold with a delicate cycle and hang to dry. Avoid using hot water or putting it in the dryer; these methods can cause the tulle to become brittle. And finally, don’t forget to brush away any snags or frays before wearing your skirt!
What you will need
In order to make a tulle skirt, you will need: tulle fabric, a waistband/belt, scissors, blunt tapestry needles, and thread.
1. Cut the tulle fabric into a desired length. If you want your skirt to be short, cut it shorter than you would if you wanted it to be long.
2. Sew the waistband/belt onto the tulle fabric. Make sure that the waistband is large enough so that it covers your belly button but not so large that it’s too tight or uncomfortable.
3. Thread the blunt tapestry needles withthread and start stitching the waistband onto the tulle fabric. Be careful not to stretch or pull out any of the stitches; your Tulle Skirt should now look like this:
4. Take care when cutting off the excess waistband material; you don’t want it to be too short or too long (it should just cover your belly button).
5. Now put on your skirt and adjust it as necessary so that it looks right (tulle skirts can be tricky to wear). You’re done!
What materials do I need to make a tulle skirt?
To create a tulle skirt, start by cutting a piece of tulle that is slightly longer than your waist measurement. Then, fold the tulle in half so that the raw edge is lined up with the raw edge of your waistband and sew it together. Next, cut out a circle from the leftover fabric and sew it to the top of the waistband. Finally, tie a knot in the middle of the circle and repeat on the other side.
How to make tulle skirts: The steps
Making a tulle skirt is a pretty easy project, but it does require some time and patience. Here are the steps you need to follow:
1. Begin by cutting out your tulle fabric into the desired length and width. You’ll want to make sure that the fabric is at least 1 inch wide so that it can be gathered later on.
2. Next, fold the fabric in half so that the selvage edges are opposite each other. Now pin the fabric together along one long edge, making sure to keep the folds in place.
3. Thread a needle with some sewing thread and start sewing along the pinned edge, being careful not to pull too tightly on the folds (this will create wrinkles in your tulle). Once you’ve completed stitching all the way down the edge, tie off the end of your thread and cut it short.
4. Now continue sewing along another side of the tulle, creating a second hemmed edge (you can also just cut off any excess Fabric after stitching). Do not tie off this second hem yet – we’ll do that later on.
5. Next, take your gathered tulle and place it over one of your hems (the side without any stitching). Make sure that all of the gathers are lined up correctly before beginning to sew them together using a zigzag stitch or a straight stitch (depending on which type of gathering you’re using). Be careful not to pull too tightly – you want your tulle skirt to be a little bit saggy in the middle.
6. Once you’ve completed stitching all the way around, tie off the end of your thread and cut it short. Now you’re ready to trim off any excess fabric (you can do this with a pair of scissors or a sharp knife).
7. Finally, repeat steps 2-6 for the other side of your tulle skirt.
How to make tulle skirts: The tips
There are a few things you’ll need to make a tulle skirt: fabric, a ruler, a needle and thread, and Tulle. Tulle is sold in rolls and comes in many different colors. The most important thing to remember when making tulle skirts is to be careful not to fray the fabric.
To make a tulle skirt, measure your waist circumference and use that as your guide for how many yards of fabric you will need. Cut the fabric according to this measurement.
Then, cut 16 strips of tulle measuring 18 inches by 1 inch each. Make sure the ends of all your strips are even and frayed the same way.
Next, take one strip of tulle and fold it in half so there’s now a 12-inch by 1-inch piece. Mark where the middle of the folded strip should go on your fabric, then pin it in place. Now take another strip of tulle and fold it in half so there’s now a 6-inch by 1-inch piece. Mark where the middle of the folded strip should go on your fabric, then pin it in place.
Now take the first folded strip and put it over the top of the second folded strip so that both strips are pinned together along one side only (the open side). You’re now going to sew these two pieces together using a straight stitch length of about 3/8 inch (1 cm). Sew across both layers at this point, then turn the skirt right-side out. Unfold the first folded strip and press it down so it’s now a 1-inch wide band. Sew this band to the bottom of the skirt, making sure it’s centered on the bottom seam.

Tulle Skirt Making Tips for Beginners
If you’re just starting out with skirtmaking, tulle is a great material to start with. Tulle is lightweight and drapes beautifully, so it can make a delicate or dramatic skirt. Here are some tips for making a tulle skirt:
1. Choose the right fabric: A traditional silk tulle skirts usually need a heavier fabric underneath to keep them from billowing in the wind, but lighter fabrics like chiffon or organza will work just as well. Try a cotton or linen blend for a more comfortable and forgiving wear.
2. Cut strips of fabric: To create your own pattern, cut strips of fabric about 1 inch wide by the length of your desired skirt panel. Make sure to save enough material for hemming!
3. Sew the strips together: Start by sewing one end of each strip together, then do the same thing at the other end. This way you have a long strip of fabric that’s now divided in half.
4. Add dashes of bias tape: To give your tulle skirt shape and stability, add a few inches of bias tape at regular intervals down one side of your seamline (or wherever you want your waistband to sit). Then, fold over one edge of the tape and press it out so it’s aligned with the seamline (it should look like this):
What is tulle?
Tulle is a type of netting made from spun thread of rayon or other synthetic fibers. It was formerly made from silk, but the high cost of obtaining the silk has led to its use almost exclusively for tulle skirts and other fancy garments. The primary advantage of tulle over other fabrics for netting is that it can be easily pulled through fingers, making it a popular choice among fashion designers and corset makers.
Tulle fabric is a very versatile fabric that can be used for a variety of projects. Here are four tips on how to make a tulle skirt:
1. Find the right tulle fabric. Tulle is a delicate fabric, so you’ll want to choose something that’s sturdy but also lightweight. Try searching for tulle fabrics that are 100% silk or rayon.
2. Cut the tulle fabric strips. To make the skirt more wearable, cut your tulle strips into shorter lengths. You can also try cutting the strips in half or thirds if you prefer a more flowing look.
3. Piece the strips together. Now it’s time to start piecing the strips together! Start by folding one strip in half and pressing it along one long edge so that it forms a crease. Then, fold the other side over the top and press down gently to ensure that the creases line up perfectly. Repeat this process until you’ve assembled all of your strips.
4. Sew the pieces together. Finally, sew your pieces together using a seam allowance of ½ inch (12 mm). Make sure to go slowly and take care when sewing through delicate fabrics like tulle!
How to Sew Tulle
In this tutorial, we will show you how to sew tulle skirts. Tulle is a very delicate fabric and needs to be handled with care. When sewing tulle, make sure that the end result is smooth and without any wrinkles.
The first step is to cut the tulle lengthwise into 1-inch wide strips. You will need about 36 strips for a full skirt size. If you are making a belt or waistband to go with your skirt, you will also need to cut out the same size strip of fabric.
To sew the tulle strips together, start by securing one end of each strip to the nearest seam allowance on either side of the strip. Then snip off any excess fabric around each seam allowance. Try not to cut through the strip itself!
Once all the strips have been sewn together, press down firmly on the seams so that they form a nice even edge. Now you can trim off any extra fabric around the edges of your skirt, leaving just a 1/2-inch border around the entire skirt shape.
Finally, add a belt or waistband if desired and enjoy your new tulle skirt!
