I have made two tulle skirts this past summer. The first skirt was a short skirt and I used panels of tulle over a lining. The second skirt I made that pink maxi you see above, for this one I used strips of tulle over lining. Both skirts were a pain in my a*s to sew. I now see why they charge $100 + dollars for these skirts. I decided I was going to give a No-Sew skirt a try this summer. In my research to see how others are making them I came across some methods that I had not seen before and that's when "I said to sew or not to sew?" hmmm. Maybe I'm not the only one trying to decide which method to use. I'm sharing the top 10 you-tubers that I found interesting out there. I hope you find something interesting and useful in these videos. Before you go, take a second and let me know what method you like and why.
Sarah's tulle skirt is sooo cute. As you can see she is super thin and she is using the crochet head bands for her skirt. I'm not gonna hate on her shinny-ness but I'm just sayin'. I like the way she makes it a little longer in the back for your booty. Although she did not make her skirt for regular wear it's still a winner.
Mikki's uses elastic on her full tulle skirt. she uses like four strips of tulle for each application she ties on the the elastic, making a thicker knot at the waist. It is super full and works well if adding a belt, This method would not work well for a fuller figure and she acknowledges this in her tutorial.
Danie's video had me cracking up! Now on her skirt she is actually using a piece of tulle for her waistband. This is something that I have not come across in my tulle research journey. Check out her channel she's got some other funny stuff out there! Thanks for the tulle and the laughs!
Shel used the most interesting method for her elastic that I have eva seen. She fused her elastic ends together with stitch witchery, yep that's exactly what I said. I don't know bout ya'll but I ain't too sure bout that one. I guess no one really handles tulle skirts as they do everyday clothes so it might be alright...maybe, I'm still mulling over that one Shel.
Miss Kris is the truth! This chic has a lot of must see DIY's and other videos. For this tulle skirt she is wrapping her tulle on a belt and this was the first time I had seen that and I thought this was awesome...oh yeah and the navy is my ish!
You will notice that the sewing videos are longer that the No-Sew videos
This is a sewing tutorial using strips of tulle and I thought this tutorial would be a easy sew tutorial.
Tabitha's uses mesh and tulle for h skirt. This tutorial is not for the person who does not know how to sew! She does have another tutorial using a circle skirt to follow up on this one. I chose this one because the shape of this skirt is a little different from all the others.
I like Shari's skirt because she is using the same method you would use to make a circle skirt. This to me seems that it would be less cumbersome when sewing the tulle. Shari is super thorough in her video so it is longer that the others and has a part II. You have to check this lady out because she is fierce with her style, she's a BOSS! This is on my list to try.
Amy's method is a little labor intensive as if working with tulle isn't already hard enough but the end result...is fabulous! This is a dramatic skirt for sure, I could see this for a photo shoot, which is what I think she used it for or a Holiday party or a black tie event.
Melony used a technique that I hadn't seen before on her tulle skirt. I'm gonna call it the tuck and tack method. She uses elastic for the waist band and tucks in one end of the tulle over the elastic and sews the the tulle together right under the elastic band. You're probably not picking up what I'm putting down so watch the video
