How to Make a Flower‐Filled Tulle Skirt
Measure around your waist first, then divide that number by 3.14 to get your “waist radius.” Fold your basic fabric in half. Chiffon and organza, depending on the material you’re wearing, are great choices for the waist area.
You can use a light fabric for this project, such as white or ivory, or a light silk fabric, but avoid anything too heavy, like satin. Unfold your fabric so that it forms a full circle, then turn it so that the wrong side is facing up. Sew the horsehair band to the wrong side of the fabric. You don’t have to do this, but it will make the hem of your dress look nicer.
Cut some u00bd-inch (1.27-centimeter) bias tape the same length as the waist of your skirt. Baste the layers into place, removing the pins as you go. If you can’t find a matching color, try making your own bias tape. If you choose a contrasting color, try matching it to one of the flowers.
