You are purchasing a adult tutu skirt in your choice of color. The number of squares you have determines the number of layers your skirt will contain, so buy your fabric yardage accordingly. Then, sew a straight stitch to secure the ends of the elastic together.
Choose the option that works best with the tulle you are using. Make sure to measure your waist before you buy your elastic and get enough elastic to fit around your waist. Hem the long edges of your lining.
While you do not need to hem your tulle, it is a good idea to hem your lining material. This is because your lining may fray if it is left unhemmed. Sew the short edges of the lining together.
Next, you will need to sew together the short edges of the lining fabric to connect the lining fabric in a circle. Measure and cut your elastic. Your elastic piece will need to be the same size as your waist measurement. Measure the elastic and then cut it to the same length as your waist measurement.
Sew the ends of your elastic together. Then, sew a straight stitch to secure the ends of the elastic together. Gather and pin the lining to your elastic. Begin pinning your lining fabric circle to the elastic band.
As you pin the lining, gather it so that you will be able to secure the edges of the entire piece around your elastic band. This may require some trial and error. Repeat this for the edges of the lining fabric circle that are now opposite each other so that you have four corners pinned to the elastic band. Then, gather the areas in between the four corners.
You may place your elastic piece on a dress form, on your model, or work without either. However, be careful not to stick your model with the pins if you decide to do the pinning with the elastic around their waist. Sew the lining onto the elastic.
After you are satisfied with the gathering of your lining fabric circle, sew the lining onto the elastic. Sew a straight stitch all the way around the pinned edges of your lining and elastic to secure them together. Remove the pins as you go. Gather and pin the tulle to the elastic. You will need to repeat the same gathering and pinning process with your tulle fabric.
However, the tulle will be in a long strip rather than in a circle. You will also want the tulle to be much fuller and more gathered than the lining.
Aim for about 4 yards 3. Lay the tulle over the lining fabric and begin pinning it in place. Sew the tulle onto the elastic. After you have finished gathering and pinning the tulle to the elastic, you will need to sew the tulle in place.
Sew a straight stitch all the way around the edges of the tulle and elastic to secure them. Remove the pins as you sew. Cut the bottom edge of the tulle to adjust the length. Once you have finished sewing the tulle onto the elastic, your skirt is ready to wear! However, if you want to adjust the length, then you can cut along the bottom edges of the tulle.

Already answered Not a question Bad question Other. Tips Washing your tulle before you use it will result in a softer, less structured fabric. If you would like your skirt to be full and structured, then do not wash it. If you want your skirt to be soft and flowing, then wash it before you use it. Did you try these steps?

Or maybe just attatching the top layer of tulle to the waist band. Just trying to diy this skirt as best I can! Thank so much for your help!!! Or how many times the measurements of my waist or hips should I buy? Any help is much appreciated. I hope this might help you to then calculate, proportionally, how much you will need as I have indicated the lengths and widths of each layer I used, above! Ok… I want one of these, but I be not got time to learn to sew.
How much are they to buy? Will it work for chiffon or organza fabric? Did she sew the ends of the waistband and the tulle together? Kat, for the rainbow layers did you sew each layer to the hem of the waist band or?? I want to make one this weekend! Thanks for sharing your tute! Hi Kat, Found this post via pinterest after a google search. Hey guys, this is alex who made the tutorial she should be able to help you!
Thankyou SO much for this tutorial-I made a goth petticoat for my recent alternative wedding-top layer lilac, next layer burgundy, then deep purple then black. Really finished off my outfit beautifully! Wish I could sew, would love this petticoat.
Not worth me even thinking of making one, my hubby would go mad. Last time I wanted to sew something …. I, ve still got the material….. I, m afraid sewing is not my fortay, i cant even follow the instructions, they just go over my head.
Wanted to email the person who posted this to ask if all layers of the colors were attached to the same yoke or were different pettis made and worn together?
I have the same questions like other before me and need to contact her. Thanks for your help. Hi everyone, Alex is now at http: Thank you for the design.
Made it tonight for my Halloween party tomorrow. It was much easier to sew in a straight line than a round. Just wondering when u add more layers,where to ssee them onto?! Thank you for this tutorial, and thank you Olivia for the suggestion, that not only makes it easier but sorts out the question of how to sew multiple levels together. Love that there were photos. I made one tonight for one of my kids. Instructions were very easy to follow.
What is the length of the tulle? Hey, if anyone is able to help me, that would be great. It will be all one length — not multiple tiers. Your email address will not be published. So without further ado, over to the lady herself… Our wedding was four years ago now and was mainly DIY, bunting, vintage linens everywhere, pearls, candelabras, bath tub bar, my Mum grew the flowers and I made the dresses.
Just what I have being picturing my little flower girls in! Love the colors, to bad that they are not for sale!!
