Default Re: Anyone made this?

I have made MANY of these!! what I do is, I never attached it to tulle. I make a skirt (measure from waist to knee and leave a 2in seam allowance at the top and seam the bottom) and lay the boas down. I zig zag over mine like every 4 inches and if they sag i'll go back and hand stitch in between (it beats hand stitching the whole thing). Depending on what size you are doing I would get 3-6 boas, make sure you have a coupon when you buy them cause unless you buy them wholesale they are very expensive. When your done attaching them if you are making just a skirt just add the elastic waist and stitch up the side seam. If you want to attach it to a crochet top, you can sew it onto it BUT it can be tricky so my suggestion would be add the elastic waist then hand stitch it to the crochet top.
I hope that wasnt too confusing!
