I Want... I Need... A TULLE Dress!

Hello, dear reader! I had the most unexciting weekend in the history of the universe... husband is working all weekend for the short-term so I was at home with 2 small children baking anzac biscuits, doing a zillion loads of washing, tripping over Duplo blocks and freezing little icecube trays full of pumpkin puree. Fun stuff.

In my spare time ;) I found myself typing "tulle party dress" into the search box on Etsy. Not sure why. And I found some of the most dreamy, delicious and darn cheap dresses I've seen for a long time. I was about to hand over my credit card... when I noticed the feedback rating. It wasn't the best, and many of the comments from previous buyers were even more dubious. Which is a big shame, because check out these little beauties:

I've decided not to buy one of these dresses... sigh... but I am inspired to make a tulle dress for Fern! We are going to a Christening in a few weeks time and I'm challenging myself to whip something up made of tulle and bits of antiquey looking lace and doilys with a matching headpiece which sounds hideous but I am hoping will look amazing! hmm. I'll keep you posted on that one.

ps. Looking for something to get your little ones this Easter that is NOT chocolate?
I'm making some little goodies that just might whet your whistle! Stay tuned later in the week!



  1. Ohhhh how pretty! i want one toooooo lol

  2. The green one is so lovely! I am sure you could make one just as pretty, Nicole. x

  3. How gorgeous!
    My weekend sounds like yours....washing, watching hubby at cricket (booo that sucked!), bunnings and that's about it!

  4. Oh my goodness, with your sewing skills, you could whip up one of these beauties in no time! Can't wait to see the dress you make for your sweet Fern. Have a wonderful week ahead, Nicole ~ Tina x
