Our latest fabric in focus is famously known for creating the iconic ballerina tutu. It’s a sheer, lightweight bridal fabric that adds illusion detail and structure to any gown. Because of this, it’s the go-to fabric for statement skirts, sheer sleeves, illusion sweetheart necklines and breathtaking backs.
What are tulle wedding dresses?
Available in different weights and levels of rigidity, tulle is the perfect wedding dress fabric for adding structure thanks to its ability to be both stiff and soft. Characterised by its delicate open weave and net-like appearance, it’s often used in linings, veils, big ballgown skirt underlayers or fanning fishtail silhouettes. Its thin and sheer properties also make it the perfect fabric for illusion sleeves, sheer panelling and as a base for lace appliqués. It’s every designer’s first choice for creating the illusion of floating floral details on naked skin.
Tulle properties – what to be mindful of
This lightweight fabric can be worn all year round but must be protected in transit and carefully put on as its delicate weave is fragile, making it prone to snagging. Because of this, wearing a necklace with a tulle illusion neckline or bracelet with a sheer sleeve is a no-no.
