I created this romantic skirt for our ‘whimsy woodland picnic’ engagement photos. I was looking for something that had a hint of vintage but was fun and girly too. I also love details so I added a scalloped hem on the liner and a pearly broch over the back closure.

How to Guide:
Get out a pad of paper to keep track of your measurements!
*Mini math tutorial* circumference is the measurement around the edge of a circle and the radius is the measurement from the middle to the edge of a circle.

The silver lining
Like a layered cake
Waist no space
I like a 2 inch thick waist band, but you can go wider or thinner – although I do not suggest going smaller than 1 inch or it will not hold up with the weight of the skirt.
Now you have all the pieces of your skirt ready – it is time to get out your sewing machine!
Putting the pieces together
Check point – try it on!
Zip it good
When applying an invisible zipper, it is done with the right side of the fabric facing up, unlike all other types of zipper applications.
Get done up, and take your beautiful tulle skirt for a night out!
