I sew (clothes).
I ride (motorcycles).
I lift (heavy things).
I Krav (Maga).
Do you think it’s possible for someone with limited to no sewing skills (aka me) to make a tulle skirt in about…Oh 10 days?
Definitely. You don’t even need a sewing machine, for certain kinds of tulle skirts! I’ve linked a few tutorials for you:
This is a tulle tutu. You’re basically knotting tulle around a ribbon over and over.
This is a layered tulle skirt (layered in a way that would allow you to not nee a slip underneath the skirt).
This one’s another layered (tiered) tulle skirt. You’d be using stretch material (very forgiving) and layers of tulle.
That’s an awesome compliment from anyone really :D
I started sewing 4 years ago in high school, but on and off. I wanna say that I’ve actually only really sewn for about a year, since I kept stopping (life happens, no money, etc, haha).
I think the biggest reason I am where I am now is how stubborn I am. For the longest time, I refused to use patterns. I was determined to learn how to do everything without patterns. I deconstructed shirts and pants to figure out how it was put together. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve messed up on an idea, and had to figure out some other way to fix it = the best way to get a cool design, I tell ya!!!
I didn’t make anything from scratch, except for my prom dresses. Looking back, I wish I made my prom dresses from thrifted things, too!
I would look at clothes from a technical perspective (looking at the seams, lines, etc). Honestly, I only used 3 patterns so far, and that was most recently… but I wanna say, since I started from taking things apart, it makes everything so much easier in terms of not needing directions, or if I wanna change something, I don’t have to plan as much ahead.
Just jump into it! That’s essentially what I did :P
In my Theater class, whatwhat?! :D
Sure! I love answering questions about sewing, figuring out ideas, etc !
