Have you ever sewn with tulle?
If you haven’t, you should really give it a try.
Or perhaps, like many new sewists, you don’t yet know what tulle is. After all, it’s an unusual name.
According to Wikipedia:
Tulle (/tuːl/ TOOL) is a lightweight, very fine, stiff netting. It can be made of various fibres, including silk, nylon, polyester and rayon. Polyester is the most common fibre used for tulle. Rayon tulle is very rare. Tulle is most commonly used for veils, gowns (particularly wedding gowns), and ballet tutus. Tulle comes in a wide array of colors and it is readily available. It can be dyed at home if it is made from nylon, rayon or silk but not if it’s made from polyester.
Tulle is a fantastic fabric to sew with. Its stiffness allows you to create all sorts of elegant and even whimsical looks.
