Tulle Striped Skirt

I love the idea of this little skirt with strips of tulle sewn on the outside to make it look all girly. There is another version of it here. The tulle gives it a fluffy look that's just perfect for play time in fairy tale land.

I've decided to try my luck at putting one together myself. I chose to use pastel pink cotton broadcloth for the base of the skirt with purplish pink tulle strips. You could have a lot of fun with the colour combinations since tulle comes in so many different colours.

It seems to me that there must be a secret to getting the tulle to gather while sewing it on, as it refused to do so for me when I was experimenting with my practice piece. If I can't figure it out after a couple of tries, I'll just pre-gather it by hand before sewing it on. Either way, I'll post a picture of my results...
