This is a step by step tutorial for a ruffled tulle skirt with an fun printed underlayer that “peeks” out. This skirt would be perfect for Prom or any other formal event.
And while it will probably take you a few hours to make, the materials are very inexpensive. If you’re on a budget, this is the skirt for you!
Here was the cost of my skirt:
$3.50 – 3 yards of tulle
$10.00 – 1 yard underlayer fabric
$1.50 – 1 yard elastic
$15 – total
You could get a little crazier with some fancy tulle (something with sparkles or sequins) and a more expensive underlayer (satin, taffeta, etc.) and still be well under $50 for your total budget!

Pardon my lackadaisical posting habits, I am experiencing an unprecedented custom order boom. Usually the first few months of the year are slower for me, but good GOD, not this year. Plus it’s nearing the end of March and I’m not trying to panic over how much garden prep I have NOT done yet.
Also I know I have already totally failed at my “one new tutorial and one new sewing pattern” per month thing. BOO! I actually have things mostly ready, but I just haven’t had time to finish them. ARG!
Yeah, that’s right. BOO and ARG!
Anyway, here are some of my new designs that I’ve been working on!
A new sweater coat called Absinthe- I had planned on designing a whole bunch of new coats, and then got completely overwhelmed with all these orders, so I only got one out in time!
The TARDIS dress! Featuring my custom designed fabric:
The Party Animal dress. Or as some people call it, The Lisa Frank dress.
