New Look pattern 6409 – perfect for making girls tulle / net skirts

New Look 6409 2nd skirt net (2)

Acacia loves getting muddy from head to foot, I often call her my troll doll.  She also loves to dress up like a princess.  Sadly at almost 6 she will soon outgrow her love for sparkles and will steer away from the princess phase.  I looked for a long time for a pattern to make pretty skirts with sparkly net/tulle.  This New Look pattern 6409 view D is perfect, I’ve made 6 of them now.  Every little girl who invites her to a party has received a sparkly skirt as a gift.  They are easy to make and perfect.  The best ones were made with satin as the underskirt and waistband.

I cut the net layers in tiers each colour on a different age hem line.  I finished each net layer with ribbon.  You can make as many net layers as you wish, I don’t think I’ve done one with more than 3.
