You may remember the old white skirt from a post a little while back. I kept changing my mind on what I wanted to do with it, until I found some beautiful sequined tulle fabric at the swap meet in Huntington Beach. I originally planned on sewing the tulle directly onto the skirt, but then I realized that it would be easier to make it a separate piece. This also allows me to pair it with other skirts if I want to.
To make the overlay, I first determined how long I wanted the tulle to be.
Once I determined the right length, I cut straight across. The resulting shape was a rectangle. Because tulle is so thin, I didn’t worry about taking it in at all by the waist. I kept the fabric cut as a rectangle, and sewed a seam to close it into a tube. Finally, I make a casting for an elastic band. Once the band was threaded through, I closed the elastic band, and then hemmed the skirt. All that was left to do was to wear it over the old skirt. Bam!
