Tulle ~ VFG Fashion Parade for week of April 8th


An essential part of so many formal gowns, tulle puts the princess in princess skirts, the froth in frothy and the frou in frou-frou.

From the VFG Fabric Resource: Fine netting with a hexagonal mesh, tulle may be of silk (as it was originally), cotton or rayon, but most commonly nylon since the 1950s. In 1768, the netting was machine made for the first time in Notthingham, England. The French city of Tulle first produced its namesake netting by machine in 1817, much aided by the invention of the bobbinet machine in 1806.
