Have you ever sewn with tulle?

If you haven't, you should really give it a try.

Or perhaps, like many new sewists, you don't yet know what tulle is. After all, it's an unusual name.

According to Wikipedia:


Tulle (/tuːl/ TOOL) is a lightweight, very fine, stiff netting. It can be made of various fibres, including silk, nylon, polyester and rayon. Polyester is the most common fibre used for tulle. Rayon tulle is very rare. Tulle is most commonly used for veils, gowns (particularly wedding gowns), and ballet tutus. Tulle comes in a wide array of colors and it is readily available. It can be dyed at home if it is made from nylon, rayon or silk but not if it's made from polyester.

    So completely agree with you! tulle is one of the most versatile material. My favourite is the way you can make tulle snazzy by adding shiny lining or pants underneath. They look so glamorous!

    WOW did this bring back some memories! I was in high school in the 50’s and we wore what we called full skirts (gathered skirts) with slips (petticoats) underneath to make them look full. I remember making them with netting a little larger version of tulle, and sewing layer upon layer to make them really full. Then we would starch them and let them dry overnight. At that they could be prickly but we still would wear them. That’s really when I learned to sew, wanting to look like everyone else. As time went by, I learned to make gowns for proms and different dances we had and was in my element. I just wish I had known it then. I loved making gowns and would have been happy doing this as a career. There were few opportunities for girls or women in the 50’s for different careers. Now I know that we were pigeon holed and if we knew about other ways and things, we could have done them, but unfortunately I didn’t know. Anyway I’m happy now so that’s what counts.
