One of these bands from Michaels
Tulle in color(s) of your choice
We really like the specific band from Michaels linked above because it has great elasticity, is the right width, and already has holes for attaching the tulle, but you may be able to find something similar at another store. Or, if you’d like your band to be a specific color, you can find the band material at Hobby Lobby on the spool in several colors. You could buy it off the spool and sew together your own band.
We put this skirt we made on a 7 month old and a 22 month old and it fit them both really well. We think you could use this band on an infant all the way up to a 2 year old, probably even a little older depending on her size. You may want to adjust the length of your strips of tulle depending on how big the child is. We cut our tulle into 12″ strips. If you’re making it for an infant, you may want to cut your tulle a bit shorter.
First, cut your tulle into 12″ long strips (or adjust length longer or shorter depending on the size of the child). The tulle is 6″ wide on the roll and you’re going to leave the width the same, so you will end up with 6″ x 12″ sections of tulle. We needed approximately 50 strips for this skirt. Tie a section of tulle in each hole of the bottom row on the band. The best way to tie the tulle to the band is to do the following:
- Fold the tulle in half lengthwise
- Push the folded end of the tulle through a hole in the band
- Loop the loose ends of the tulle through the folded section of the tulle, then pull it tight
Go all the way around the band until each hole on the bottom row has a section of tulle tied to it. And that’s it. Really easy, right? If you want a really full skirt you can always add additional rows of tulle.
