Last month I designed and made a vintage styled lilac prom dress with a gathered tulle overlay. My first ever impression of tulle was as the classic ballet tutu,
And although I have created a few dresses with tulle overlays before, this particular time it got me thinking about tulle in a whole new way:
As a contrast overlay it adds dynamism , and the changing density of colour great textures. The tulle overlay can evoke ruffled romanticism
Or crisp style lines
B ut, no matter how classic a material is, it's always due a reinvention.
