A tulle skirt is often worn when a female wants to wear a more fluffed out and shapely skirt. Tulle is fabric that is used to make bridal veils, scarves, gowns, tutus, skirts and various other pieces of clothing as well as decor. It can be made from several different types of materials including silk, cotton and nylon. It resembles netting and is often starched to give it a stiffer feel.
A tulle skirt can have fabric on top and tulle underneath or vice versa. More often than not, the tulle will be underneath to give the fabric over it a bit of a lift. The tulle is often ruffled to help create that extra boost.
When making a tulle skirt, it can often be better to sew it by hand, as the fabric can get caught up in the sewing machine and tear or cause other problems. There are several variations to make, but almost all are incredibly easy to create. Look for a beginners pattern online or in a craft store to get started.
A tulle skirt can come in many forms, including bubble, ruffled or straight. The bubble skirt will most likely not show the tulle that is underneath as the outside fabric curls under at the bottom hiding the fabric underneath. For the ruffled or straight skirt, if the tulle is underneath it may be inconspicuous or it can hang out from the bottom as part of the design.
Some people may feel tulle is slightly uncomfortable on the skin due to how it is often starched. If someone enjoys the look of tulle as part of a skirt, the best option is to find one that has it over the base fabric. Another option is to purchase a skirt where it is less starched and has a softer feel.
Tulle fabric is used quite often in the production of the bottom part of a wedding gown as well as in the creation of tutus. A tulle skirt can come in varying lengths from short to long. A very popular design of skirt is to have it mid thigh to knee length with tulle ruffled underneath it.
A tulle skirt should be tried on before purchase to make sure the fabric and design is comfortable. While tulle skirts may not be for everyone, they can make a fun addition to a wardrobe. The fluffiness of the fabric can be fun to play with and can add a unique touch to many outfits.
