Tutorial: How to Make a Fluffy Tulle Skirt

Tulle skirt tutorial in the post. Wings, hat, and stockings pattern by Becka Noel for Cosplay by McCalls

Make a tulle skirt to go with Becka Noel’s pattern for the wings, hat, and stockings.

When taking the photos for Becka Noel’s new accessory pattern, we needed a fluffy tulle skirt to finish off the outfit. This is a really simple project that’s fun to put together and makes a big impact. Since it’s not included in the pattern, we thought we’d share it with you here!

There are lots of ways to make a tulle skirt, but the nice thing about this version is that it pulls on and has only a little bit of gathering at the waist, which makes it less bulky and easier to wear under corsets or tight-fitting bodices. Since decorative elastic is used at the waist, it also looks neat and professional when worn on the outside. Read on for the full tutorial!

Also, come visit us at New York Comic Con next week! We’ll be in booth #840 all weekend, with show specials on Cosplay by McCall’s and other costume patterns. Show off your costumes, chat with the team about costume sewing, and meet some of our amazing designers!
