    I was thinking of making the fairy tale dress without the tulle, mainly to simplify things a bit. Has anyone done this? Does the dress still hang properly? I’ll be making it out of quilting weight cotton.

    I made it without tulle as a casual dress for my daughter.

    I did add more width (fullness) to the skirt panels.

    I made it without the tulle and didn’t add any extra fullness. I also used a quilting weight cotton. I think it still looked good and I don’t think anyone looking would realise the tulle was ‘missing’ (ie the skirt is full enough)

    It doesn’t matter if you don’t do the tulle. It will,still hang well. You can add tulle to a dress of a similar style that doesn’t generally call for it in a pattern so it is just as easy to take it out. It is still quite twirly but if you want it with a huge twirl factor then you could add but I don’t think it is essential. I have made three, all from quilting cotton and two had the tulle.

    Hope that helps

    Great – and thanks for the link to the tutorial, Nicole, it looks great and I love the orange lining! It’s going to be a dressmaking class project that I start in

    May so no doubt I’ll be back for advice then 🙂
