Tulle Twirl Skirt

Last year I made a tulle skirt that I was dying to have for my girls. I liked the idea behind it, but it wasn't executed perfectly. I was new to using my ruffle foot and although the skirt was really cute, it wasn't perfect and it become more of a dress up skirt (or dress).

I have wanted to try to make a new one ever since. This time, I am much more pleased with the outcome. I love tulle on little girls. I am planning on using it in their clothing for as long as they'll let me get away with it.

I have a few more ideas in my head that I think will help me achieve the perfect tulle twirl skirt. Probably for the holidays I'll try again with fun colors.

I am showing some friends tomorrow how to make these, but was wondering if there is any interest in a tutorial? I have never done one before, but I may give it a try. It's not hard, and paying $5-$10 for materials sure beats a $35 price tag at the mall.

I know the details of the ruffles and tulle are hard to see in the white, but click on the picture to enlarge and you'll have a better idea of what they look like.

I love it Jamie. The girls look just perfect in them. I still love the boldness of their pink one though. Your girls just don't know how lucky they are!

Yea for more posts. They are making me happy. I would LOVE a tutorial. I know I know I don't have girls, but I really do make things for other girls ALL THE TIME. And I have now have a neice with more of an excuse for such things (Ok, I guess I am just trying to validate myself.) BUt, yet, I would love a tutorial. I think this skirt is fabulous!
