here we are again, another rhode to the runway post! in the last rttr post i started working on a tulle skirt, well i'm still working on it. while there aren't a lot of steps in making this skirt it is extremely difficult working with such long pieces of tulle. as if the length weren't enough, this textile is so light that it easily folds and twists and creates A LOT of static causing me to redo steps.
i started making this skirt on my own without hannah around, and that was a big mistake. at some point when i was sewing one of the four skirts together i happened to sew the bottom hem to the top of the other creating a very noticeable twist. above is the start of me trying to fix this mistake. i just have to say that it took hannah and i 15 minutes to even figure out that this was the cause!
half way through ripping the seam i tossed the tulle over my head. after doing that i turned to hannah and said so this is what it's like to wear a veil!" we were also coincidentally watching say yes to the dress...
sometimes you just need to take a seat and take each mistake one stitch at a time.
now this may look also exactly like the picture above, it's the start of gathering the skirt to create the fullness a tulle skirt is known for. if i'm being realistic, which i often am, i'm going to say there are at least one or two more posts about this skirt before it done. so stay tuned!
after all the "small" mistakes were taken care of i started work on creating the first of three skirts that will make up the tulle skirt.
