DIY Tulle Skirt


Good morning! I trust we all survived the holiday weekend and are back to work with bellies a little fatter and wallets a little post-black-Friday thinner.

I wanted to share with you the DIY tulle skirt I made to wear for Thanksgiving dinner! (And got approximately 1 hour of use out of before changing into a more pumpkin pie-friendly velour track suit.)

I was inspired by to make this after seeing a beautiful Anthropologie tulle skirt here and an Etsy version here, and I'm happy to report that all it took was 17 yards of tulle and a handful of appropriately timed swear words, and I was able to craft a similar version at a fraction of the price.

I'm short on time now, but will put together a tutorial in the next day or two in case anyone is interested and feeling crafty. UPDATE - tutorial here.




I curled my hair by wrapping around the barrel of a curling iron, then pulled the top 9/10 of my hair halfway through a rubber band, loosened with my fingers and pinned in place to make this half updo. 

Top: Express (old) 
Belt: Kohl's (old) 
Skirt: DIY
Shoes: Cole Haan

Have a wonderful week!

  14. Oh my goodness, how beautiful is this! The lace and tulle together is stunning. And the fact that skirt was a DIY project is even better. I've been thinking about making my own tulle skirt for a while now, and after seeing this, I think it's a must. Hope you enjoyed the holiday!

  15. Gorgeous outfit, Bonnie! I love the combo of black and pale pink together. Always classy and timeless.

    If you don't mind my asking, which camera do you use, and how do you make your photos look so nice and BIG on your posts? They always look great.

  31. Maybe you should switch your Dr. Profession and become a designer Bonnie? Seriously this tull skirt looks like a $$$$$$$$$ Designer piece. Pairing with the laced shirt makes this whole look a perfect and elegant Bonnie outfit :-). Just so pretty, there are no words. Looking forward to your diy instructions :-)
    Have a lovely day lady!

  38. LOL - no "skills" were involved, I promise!

    ReplyDelete
  39. LOL - no, this one took a lot of coffee type energy drinks. ;) 17 yards sounds like a lot, but once it's gathered it's not too bad. I wouldn't have wanted any more layers though - once I started sewing the 5th and 6th on, it was getting a little unmanageable!

  40. Thank you, Manuela! Let me know if you decide to try it out!

  41. I hear you - I just couldn't with that Anthro skirt, knowing that the fabric store down the street sells tulle for $1.50 a yard!
