Plus, making it myself was so much less expensive. Ready to make one with me?? Then measure the fullest part of your hips the skirt opening has to be big enough to go over your hips when you put it on , and divide that number by 3.
Take that resulting number and divide by 2. Use craft paper to cut a large square. Then measure your hip measurement out from one corner just keep pivoting the ruler to make lots of marks and connect the dots at the end to get your rounded edge. Cut out your pattern paper. The number of squares you have determines the number of layers your skirt will contain, so buy your fabric yardage accordingly.
Fold your large square in half, and then in half again, and place the pattern so that the corner with the middle of the square is near the waistline of the pattern. Use fabric scissors to cut along the waistline and bottom hemline. Unfold the tulle, and you should have a giant tulle donut! Make as many tulle donuts layers as you want, and cut one extra with your pattern out of a lining material for the bottom.
I think these skirts looks best when the lining is a little shorter than the tulle. Stack your layers together with the lining as the bottom layer and put a few pins near the waist to secure.
To make your waistband, pin the elastic around your natural waist so that it feels snug but not too tight. Wiggle out of the elastic and sew it together at that point.
Use marking chalk to mark 4 equal sections on the waistline of your tulle circle. Do the same with the inside edge of your waistband. In that case, just pin the middle of each gap to the middle of the elastic section so you now have 8 pins total holding your layers together.
To sew your layers together, turn your skirt inside out and sew a few stitches near where a pin is holding the layers together. Continue this process of pulling the elastic and the fabric straight and sewing until you get all the way around the waistband. You can try on your new skirt!
I would say my biggest tip from making my own is to make sure you have all your layers pinned before you sew the waistband on. Count your layers to make sure they are all pinned first! You can pretty much do as many layers as you want on this skirt without much added cost at all! Not too bad at all!!

Always want to make one for myself… What kind of tulle did you use, soft or stiff? I saw some ten year olds at the store and they went shopping for specifically tulle. I love wearing skirts in the summertime. What a great idea. I love tulle skirts. Now I just need to find someone who can make me the one you showed.
Since I cannot sew: I absolutely adore this. I think pairing this with one of my band t-shirts and a pair of converse would be fantastic. I better get to the fabric store….
