It's really quite simple to get into making your own clothes - even things you'd actually want to wear for special occasions. Here's a tutorial for a tulle holiday skirt I wrote for Fiskars.

It helps to reduce the static in the fabric and keeps it much more manageable. You can read the full tutorial here.
