An Ode to Tulle

It may seem extreme to label my love and admiration of tulle as a “love affair” but I will label it as such. Seeing and touching tulle has as much an effect on me as sunshine does. It inspires, it makes me want to design, try on new clothes, plan more weddings.

It is a soft fabric that goes well enough with just about everything. From skirts,tutus (remember the infamous Sex and the City intro?), to weddings and events. I use it to drape the scenery anywhere from arbors, door entrances and chairs.

I even pick out my daughter’s (well youngest only at this point) dresses to include tulle!

The term “tulle” comes from the Souther region of France it is named after and made famous by the historical French ballet.

When it came time for my wedding, I passed the now very trendy and beautiful beaded dresses in turn for a Mori Lee tulle dress. The entire dress was made from tulle, I couldn’t have asked for a dreamier dress. To top it off, I also wore tulle tutu (haha yes evidence below) to my first bridal shower that took place in a nearby garden venue.

It is my favorite fabric to wear and work with. Do you have a tulle piece you just love?
