How do you make a skirt puffy?
So I'm making a dress for my senior project at school. It is both Victorian and Japanese inspired, with a steam-punk flair. The bottom is supposed to be really puffy, and the top is supposed to have the sleeves of a kimono. But I can't really figure out how to make the bottom of the dress stay all fluffy. Help?
Usually really puffy dresses have an layered underskirt/tutu underneath them, to make them stick out.
You can use tulle to make it puffy, you can get it in different thicknesses depending on how much you want it to stand out. You can basically make a tutu underskirt with the thick tulle. the more layers the more puffy it will be
yah I'd think lots of pleats or tulle
usually a tulle petticoat is worn or sewn into the skirt.
these are some good tutorials
Thank you all!
Sewing some cord onto the hem will make it stick out or wear a fifties rope petticoat underneath ..which is what I wore when I was very young!
Getting a tulle skirt to wear underneath it but I would recommend also to make a bubble skirt. Found this tutorial on here
