How Do You Make a Tulle Ballet Skirt?


Making a tulle ballet skirt is a fun, creative way to express yourself through fashion. It’s also a great way to add a bit of flair to your dance wardrobe. With just a few basic supplies, you can create a beautiful, custom-made skirt that is perfect for any occasion.

The first step in making a tulle ballet skirt is to choose the type of tulle you’d like to use. There are several different types available, including organza, chiffon, and tulle netting. Choose one that best suits the occasion and your personal style.

Next, decide on the length of your skirt. Measure from your waist down to where you would like the skirt to end and make sure it’s long enough to comfortably cover your legs when standing or dancing.

Now it’s time to cut the tulle fabric into strips according to the desired length of your skirt. Each strip should be twice as wide as the desired finished width of your skirt plus an extra inch for hemming.

For example, if you want your finished skirt width to be 10 inches, then each strip should be 22 inches wide. Cut as many strips as needed for the desired length and width of your skirt.


Once all of your strips are cut, lay them out on a flat surface so that they overlap slightly at each end. Place pins at each end of each strip in order to hold them together while sewing.

Using a sewing machine, sew along both ends of each strip in order to attach them together into one continuous piece that forms the foundation of your tulle skirt.


To finish off the look of your skirt, fold over and hem both raw edges of the fabric using an overcast stitch or zigzag stitch on either side.


Finally, you will need to make a waistband for your skirt using elastic or ribbon that matches or compliments the color and texture of your tulle fabric. Cut two pieces of elastic/ribbon slightly longer than the waist circumference measurement from earlier and sew them together into one continuous loop.

With these materials and steps in mind, creating a beautiful custom-made tulle ballet skirt can be an enjoyable project! With practice and patience anyone can master this skill and make unique skirts perfect for any occasion.
