It’s back by popular demand: Today’s post features my custom made tutu, a.k.a tulle skirt :) I posted a #FBF picture to my Instagram account (follow me @InMyJoi) a few weeks ago and everyone loved it, so I thought why not pull out my tulle-licious beauty once again! I love wearing my favorites over and over again, my tulle skirt is no exception.
This time of year often involves events that give one extra opportunities to glam up, I say what better way to do so than in a tulle skirt?!
Now I originally purchased this skirt for a white party, but I wondered just how much use I'd get out of it afterward. I must say, not only was it worth purchasing, but I also found a number of uses for this pristine white beauty all year around. (Please ignore my hair gone wild in the next picture)
If you’re thinking about ordering or perhaps making a tulle skirt but feel somewhat hesitant, allay your fears.
Look for density or extra pouf factor which will provide more coverage.
Wear a similar colored slip underneath of your skirt is unlined like mine.
When it comes to tulle, bigger is better IMO.
Tulle is very easy to clean.
I used Spray & Wash to clean my skirt: thoroughly spray stains and place skirt in a plastic garment bag overnight. The next day fully rinse the skirt, removing all excess water with a towel. Hang to dry. *For a skirt that is made exactly like mine, you may also braid the strips while wet to increase the pouf factor. When it dries unravel the braids, you will notice a crinkle effect.
Of course I vote “YAY” for tulle skirts, how about you?!
