Create Your Own- Midi Tulle Skirt

Create Your Own- Midi Tulle Skirt

Surprisingly enough I am getting old, and my first thought when I was invited to a

 ‘Chucks, Tux, Tutu & Tiara”

21st Birthday party was: What am I going to wear?!

 

The classic tutu seems a little too… “Girly and Young” for me, as I am pushing 30! So, I opted to join in on the theme, but designed a slightly more appropriate tulle skirt.

The three days leading up to the great week in the Cape, was a lot of back-and-forth deciding on a colour and a style.

When I went to the fabric shop, Fabric Link, I had already pre-decided on wearing all black! As usual…

But upon my arrival, I saw a bunch on pretty colours and finally decided on Emerald Green, I’ve always loved the colour, but never actually bought anything even close to this shade of green. I was excited to start playing.

We folded, cut and sewed our way through a few options:

*The Classic Tutu (which I was clearly not feeling)

*A Tutu with a “tail/ train”

*A Long Tulle Skirt

*A Fairy Skirt/ Long Tutu

But in the end, I opted for this Layered Tulle Midi Skirt. I feel it was more age appropriate and the slight shimmer added volumes to the otherwise boring black faux-leather underclothes I paired the skirt with.

 

We then finished the look off with a band around the waist and a light jersey!
