Arina is back to share another modification with us. Adding the tulle skirt to the Regina is right on trend. This style is something I see a lot in the store. Now you can make your own. Follow the directions below, and do not forget to show us your result in our Facebook group or tag us on IG (@Sofilantjes_anne).
Photo 1: Measure how wide your elastic is, and cut that amount from the pattern piece of the bodice. Continue making everything like the pattern. I used one layer of tricot and three layers of tulle and processed it just like one skirt. Assemble the skirt and the bodice as well. Do not fasten the bodice to the skirt yet. First, you will now cut the elastic to size. I used the same size as the bodice. Add 2 cm seam allowance and cut. Close the elastic by aligning the two short sides and sewing 1 cm from the edge. Topstitch the short sides at 0.5 cm.
Photo 2: Now, you will put the elastic on the upper body. You do this by placing the wrong side of the elastic on the wrong side of the body. Short stitch the elastic on the side.
Photo 3: Now, you fold the elastic to the right side, and you may see some protruding fabric. Cut this off very carefully.
Photo 4: Right side up, topstitch the same stitch again.
Do everything exactly the same with the skirt. Finished!
Now for the finished product. Ready to sew your own?
i have a question, when adding tulle, do I make separate skirts. ie. cotton lycra layer, than one layer of tulle and then second layer of tulle. or do I sew it all attached, put the layers of tulle and sew the sides as one lycra and layers of tulle.
I also left out pockets is that correct. Please help thank you
