I recently stumbled across the leftovers of my 10 minute tulle tutu (a.k.a: I tripped over them and ended up sprawled in a refashionista heap on the floor) and just knew I could create an adorable skirt with another scrappy bit I had hidden away in my stash!
Raid your hoarded fabric and create your own quirky peplum with my terrific tulle curtain skirt tutorial!
Grab a thrifted tulle or lace curtain that wraps loosely around your waist, a piece of elastic that wraps comfortably around your waist and that chopped skirt lining hiding in your stash.
Create a simple waistband casing on the skirt lining by simply folding down the top edge, stitching it down and leaving a small opening to insert the elastic through. Pop a safety pin on the end of your elastic, feed it through the waistband casing and stitch the ends together!
You could also easily substitute a half-slip for the chopped skirt lining and cut out the above step entirely.
Snag that curtain, double it if desired, and stitch it all around the waistband.
Chop the excess curtain from the bottom of your almost-done-skirt. (tulle & lace curtains generally don’t fray so there’s no need to hem, hooray!)
Stitch the chopped bottom around the top of your skirt to create an adorable peplum!
Pop on your delightful new skirt with a cute top and some groovy tights and head out!
