I'm back. I told you all I've been busy.
This is one of my favorites so far. It's my May submission for MAGAM. Yes, I said May. I'm a few weeks late, but better late than never.
How many of you have seen those really cute tulle skirts and thought in your little girl voice, " I want one." If you haven't, I have. There's a little girl that wants to play princess way down inside. May 24th & 31st, she came out to play!
Here are my inspirations for my creations:

Tulle Skirt for the Young:
One of my favorite little divas is five now. She is so full of life and she's cute as a button! I felt so privileged to make her tutu for her birthday celebration. Every little lady needs a tutu. This was a no sew project. I cut 5" X 16" strips of tulle (5 yards) and tied knots around a piece of elastic. I also tied ribbon on the elastic as well. I think it turned out cute. She loved it.
Tulle Skirt for the Young at Heart:
Our Pastor and First Lady celebrated their 25th anniversary. We had a weekend of events. When I heard about the semi formal banquet, I knew exactly what I wanted to wear - a tulle skirt. Off to Wal-Mart I went to get tulle. 15 yards of tulle and 1 yard of polyester later, I was ready to get started. I used the circle skirt method to cut the layers of tulle (8) and the polyester lining. I stitched the layers of tulle and the lining together. I measured my waist with elastic and created a waist band with polyester lining material and threaded the elastic through the channel. 1 hour later, voila, I had a dreamy tulle skirt. I got lots of compliments on it from the young and the old.
So what do you do to release your inner little princess? I think I'll make a few more.
Until next time, smooches!
