What is Tulle?

Tulle is a delicate fabric with a hexagonal weave that can be made of a variety of fibers. It owns its name to the French town of Tulle where it first appeared in the 18 th century. Mostly lightweight and extremely sheer, it is a popular choice for overlays and apparel accents. It gives extra volume to any dress or skirt if layered underneath. The properties of tulle, as well as application, depend on the composition. Silk tulle is gauzy and requires several layers to create volume, while cotton tulle material is stronger, has a slightly coarser feel and allows for more structure. The most common uses include:

  • Overlays;
  • Veils;
  • Gloves;
  • Tutu skirts;
  • Dresses;
  • Lingerie;
  • Wedding favors;
  • Embellishments.

Embroidered Tulle Fabric

Embroidery is an intricate work of thread done with a specialized machine or by hand. It makes everything look better and puts a feminine twist on the garment. Embroidering tulle is not an easy matter, given the delicate nature of the fabric. However, when done right, the result is astounding. Satin stitch is one of the most beautiful decorating techniques. Silky and soft to the touch, it creates a raised pattern, adding weight to the oh-so-sheer tulle background.

How to Sew with Tulle

Tulle is a slippery fabric and might be a real challenge if you are a beginner at dressmaking. The good news is that it does not fray, so the edges can be left raw. Here are some basic tips for sewing with tulle that can help you turn it into a fabulous piece of clothing.

  1. Prepare your sewing tools and notions in advance – scissors, threads, needles, pins, a measuring tape and a sewing pattern.
  2. Tulle can be steamed or dry-cleaned. Cotton tulle might be pre-washed, however, this fabric does not shrink, so there is really no need for special treatment. Use a scrap of fabric to test if pre-washing works for you.
  3. Tulle tends to accumulate static electricity. This can be avoided by spraying the fabric with anti-static spray.
  4. Make sure the fabric is wrinkle-free. Iron it with care on a low setting, with a pressing cloth (e.g., tissue paper or silk organza). Or, you could also use a special iron shoe.
  5. If you need to secure tulle fabric, use fine pins or pattern weights to keep it in place. You might also attach it to a piece of fabric with pins.
  6. Use regular or tailor’s chalk to mark the fabric. It’s always better to test your marker on a piece of fabric to make sure it removes easily.
  7. Sharp scissors are a key to success. A rotary cutter is another helpful tool when you need to cut a straight line. Make sure you avoid snags when cutting.
  8. Choose the correct machine foot and needle for your sewing machine. Straight stitches and overlock seams are the best. We recommend using fine polyester threads that are lighter in color, otherwise seams can look quite dark. Clear, or invisible, threads are also a great choice for sewing tulle.
