Tulle Lined Spring Skirt_2
This image courtesy of

From the Blogger: "This is a very quick-to-make skirt. It is lined with tulle, and made in a way the tulle peeks out below the hem of the skirt fabric, making it look like a princess skirt. It is great for spring, not too cold and not too hot, and totally perfect for little girls. The tutorial is very easy to follow and sizes can easily be adjusted to fit just about any age. It only requires basic sewing skills."

Materials List

  • Two pieces of fabric for the skirt. For my almost seven year old, I used two 75 x 50 cm pieces. The skirt turned out just below the knee but that's ok, she'll grow into it quick enough. For other sizes, use an existing skirt as reference and adjust proportionally.
  • Two pieces of tulle for the lining, slightly larger than the skirt fabric (for the tulle to show up pleated under the skirt; if you want it to fall straight, use the same width). Length can be the same or you can add a couple of additional cm, depending on how much tulle you want to show under the skirt.
  • One piece of elastic for the waist


How to Make Your Skirt

  1. Sew down the sides of both the skirt fabric and the tulle.

  2. Fold over the bottom of the skirt twice, pin in place, and sew to create a hem. No need to hem the tulle as it doesn't fray.

  3. Place the lining inside the skirt and turn inside out. Using temporary stitches, attach the lining to the top of the skirt fabric, adding pleats here and there.

  4. Fold the top over twice, creating a casing wide enough for your elastic.

  5. Pin in place and sew all around leaving a small opening to insert the elastic.

  6. Using a safety pin, insert the elastic through the casing. Sew the edges of the elastic together and sew the opening shut.

  7. Your skirt is ready!

Little girls will love the peek a boo tulle that shows from out under this skirt. Tulle is relatively inexpensive and can be used to enhance even a store bought skirt. I would make a matching set for a dolly for an extra special gift idea. The accompanying tutorial for this project is easy to follow too.
