City Chic

Today I am channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw!  I made a different style of tulle skirt this time compared to the one that I previously posted that you can check out here.  This skirt is more of circle skirt style.  It has a lot more movement and when making one, it’s more tedious because it uses a lot more tulle. If you are interested in making one, the tutorial is located at the bottom of this post.

And instead of a thick waistband that I usually like on my skirts, I chose to do a skinnier waistband which gave it a more delicate feel.  Tulle skirts are great and so versatile. You can wear them to a wedding, a party, brunch or tea party with the ladies.  If you follow me on Instagram @CHEAPBUTCHIC, you’ll be able to recognize this shot.  Leopard heels with a tulle skirt is such an unexpected accessory but gives the outfit a more edgy type look. So like a said, tulle skirts are absolutely versatile and should be in your closet.

  3. Cute!! Between the gathered skirt and the circle skirt, which tulle skirt do you prefer now? I know that you say there is more movement in the circle skirt, is that because of the extra fabric?
