Tulle Skirt DIY

Today I wanted to share with everyone how to make a super simple skirt that is fun to wear!
What you'll need: Tulle fabric in your color of choice at least 50 inches wide, Scissors, and a sewing machine!
1.Measure between 5 and ten inches of tulle to use for the waist band. Measure the length to fit at your waist plus some excess to use for tying.
2. Cut waistband fabric.
3. Fold tulle width in half.
4. Measure skirt fabric so that it wraps around you twice and then cut. Leave folded
5. Measure about an inch and a half away from the fold line. sew the entire length of the fabric on this line.
6. Mark where the excess fabric starts.
7. Thread your waistband fabric through your newly sewn waistband.
8. Sew the skirt to the waist fabric at the excess line.
Your all done! Make sure it fits and trim loose threads!
I cant wait to wear this skirt when I go out with some cute heels. Its such a statement piece!
xoxo!
