DIY MINI-ME TULLE SKIRT UNCATEGORIZED

Tulle Skirt for “Mini-Me”

October 10th, 2016 16 Comments

Did I ever tell you how my child waits until the last minute to ask me to sew something for Mini-Me? I do seriously believe that when ideas come to her mind, she believes there are no limits to my abilities. Also, I believe, that I don’t have any sense of bounds where my granddaughter’s needs are concerned, no matter how little time I have. It’s a no-brainier, when my child has an idea for an outfit for my granddaughter, I just cannot say no, and whatever it is, has to be top notch. This tulle skirt came about because Jennifer dreamt up an idea for a pearls and tulle Christmas Photoshoot. Each year she does a different theme, this years theme required a skirt that gave all the fluff I could give for a child yet not make it look like a toddler tutu.

 Well you know what I did….I did what any Mimi would do.  I took care of my business and made a gorgeous, beautiful tulle skirt for my Mini-Me.  Doesn’t she look absolutely magnificent in this 25 yards of tulle fabric!!!

The skirt is made up of 10 yards of double layered lightweight tulle on top and 10 yards of doubled netting on the under-layer sewn onto the satin base circle skirt at the halfway point closed by a zipper and the waist is 2 layers of 1.5″ elastic encasing the top edges of the tulle.

For the gathering, I used my gathering foot on my machine to knock this puppy out in less than 40 minutes.  I’m very happy with the photoshoot my daughter lined up, this is one lovely picture.
