Formal dress

October 16, 2011

My daughter would like a layered soft tulle skirt with a fitted top for her formal in a few weeks time.  I am currently on holidays so I  have some time to devote to the project. I am feeling a bit unsure of how to attack the skirt. Should I start with a full circle pattern? I have made a dress with the Vintage Vogue pattern V2902  for the other daughter. Could I use this as a start? Any suggestions would be so helpful.

  1. take a look at simplicity 3878. it has a very pretty tulle skirt. it might be a little easier to start with a pattern that is already designed to use tulle as opposed to trying to figure out how to work the tulle into a pattern- save yourself some headaches. good luck! 🙂

    1. Thanks. Funny thing I tried to buy that same pattern but unfortunately it was unavailabe at that stor, so I’ll go further to find it.

  2. Here is the finished formal dress. I ended up using the circle skirt pattern as a guide. Rather than layering the soft tulle I added more circles to the skirt. I had a total of 6 full circles of soft tulle! The result was beautiful especially combined with the fitted top.
