Making a tulle skirt couldn't be simpler! For this project we used the Tulle Circle Skirt DIY instructions found on A Beautiful Mess blog post - it has very clear pictures, which is a must for any good tutorial! We used So Fine! #50 for stitching the skirts with Bottom Line pre-wounds in the bobbin. While making the skirts was fairly easy, I did find that it got even easier when I kept the following in mind:
We used a serger, and the new Superior Threads line Sergin' General, to make the linings for the tulle skirts.
Sergin' General is a Poly-wrapped poly core thread specifically designed for serging or overlocking. It's the cleanest serger/overlock thread available with excellent strength and elongation for smooth stitches with less puckering. Sergin' General is available in 50 solid colors specifically chosen for their blending tones so you can easily find a perfect match. It's wound on convenient, 3,000 yd. cones and will fit on your serger/overlocker comfortably.
