Well- I finally put together a tutorial for this ombre technique with tulle for the
Autie is the brilliant one behind it. I remember her explaining it to me on the phone and it was a serious lightbulb moment. Genius, I tell you!
For the tutorial I only showed one back bodice piece.
You will want to follow these instructions for a front bodice pattern piece and both back pieces.
I used an ivory matte satin for my main fabric, and a Williamsburg Blue tulle.
Decide roughly where you want your ombre to start.
(How far down your bodice) Use your pattern piece as a
guide before moving on to the next step.
Start your markings where you want the ombre to start.
For your first piece
of tulle, measure from the bottom of the
fabric up to the top crease. Double this
measurement. For your second piece of tulle,
measure from the bottom of the fabric to the
second crease and double that. And so on.
Your last piece of tulle will be pretty small.
