I came across some AMAZING sheer fabric with pink, felt butterflies at Jo-Ann and really wanted to figure out a project for it. So…I combined my love with the new tulle circle skirt trend, and this fabric-VOILA!
There are a lot of great tutorials on How To Make a Tulle Circle Skirt, like this one that I used for this project.
You will need:
-A yard and a half of liner
-A few yards of tulle
-A yard and a half of top fabric if you’d like (like the butterly)
-Some elastic for the waist band
Next, you have to cut out a pattern. There a bunch of math on how you do this, and this site explains it well.
Next, you cut out 1 copy of your liner, 1 copy of your top fabric, and 3-5 copies of your tulle. Once they’re all cutout, lay them on top of each other, then sew them together.
Now measure your elastic around the smallest part of your waist and sew it together. Mark off spots on your skirt and waistband with pins. Then pin the waistband to the skirt (there will be gathered parts of your material). Sew this all together by pulling on your elastic to match the amount of fabric you are sewing.
You’re complete and can twirl around in your new DIY Tulle Circle Skirt!
Or you can take it to the How Weird Festival in San Francisco
I paired my new skirt with:
Thrifted Express angora mock crop top
H&M “Aloha Beaches” flats
Tiffany bracelet and Forever 21 flower ring
