For weeks I have been dreaming of a tulle skirt. I kept seeing them everywhere and was quite annoyed with myself for letting the many layers of tulle stop me from having one. BUT, I had to have one of those skirts. They are absolutely geor- G- ous! I've seen them on almost every page of any woman's magazine. The celebrities have been wearing them for a while,,, did I miss the memo? I think I did.

Burda 7143 for the skirt and Simplicity 2364 View F for the top.
I ended up adding extra fabric to the lining because it was not long enough to completely cover my bust area, so the whole top is lined. I doubled the sleeve because I wanted to blend the single and textured knit together in order to make the front and the back make sense (or at least that's how I could see it). I went by the pattern for the skirt. I just added tulle, 4 extra inches from the original View B and lined it with lightweight taffeta. It swishes when I walk. That's a sound that some people like and others don't, but I felt that it was a necessary evil for this skirt.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you have a happy St. Patrick's Day.
Lots of Love
