SEWING PATTERN for making a TULLE DRESS:
You will receive: ONE (1) sewing pattern with tutorial and patterns for all sizes ranging 0 month thru 12 girl
This dress is perfect for any dressy event. Use soft tulle/netting to make this dress comfortable to wear. The back bodice has shirring to ensure a great fit. The tulle overskirt has open sides for a nice flow. The underskirt is just as important as it provides coverage but it’s fully sewn on the sides. The straps are short for safety but can be extended on your own liking. They tie behind the neck but by adding a loop of ribbon to the center back, they can be looped through as well!
This is what you will get:
-digitally drawn templates for bodice and strap ruffles
-sizing chart to cut your fabric for the skirt parts
-list of required materials
-fabric yardage requirement
-pictured tutorial with easy step by step instructions
-comes on PDF's (needs Adobe reader to open)
Your sewing machine should be set to sew with elastic thread! Most do but you want to check my blog post http://whimsycoutureboutique.blogspot.com/2009/02/free-tutorials.html about sewing with elastic thread as well.
I made six of these for the flower girls at my daughter's wedding. They were beautiful. Easy to make although I had to redraft the pattern for one as the little girl was not a standard size but it worked very well. I also use stiff sequinned tulle for the skirts and sequin fabric for the top. I added snowflake buttons to close the sides a little because the gap was not pleasing to my eyes. Soft tulle would have closed it naturally but it was how my daughter wanted them.
I look forward to making this dress! I will try to do another review after I have made it, but the pattern looks very well explained.
You will need: cotton fabric for bodice and straps, broadcloth for underskirt and soft tulle/netting for overskirt, a sewing machine, serger/overlock machine (optional), elastic thread, scissors, iron (optional) and basic sewing skills (basics of sewing with elastic thread is recommended!)
