I'm making a slip ruffle for a little girl's dress. Do I use the 54-inch mesh (coarse tulle) for the netting required, to be attached to the slip? Or is there another (more specific) type of net that I should be using? Any ideas?

Is there an alternative to a netting to use should I not find any? Meaning, can I use some of type of material to attach to the underskirt that would serve the purpose of filling out the dress?

Thanks!

I would use the one that is least scratchy. Usually tulle isn't as rough as net. Another choice might be organza or organdy

If you want the little girl to wear the dress happily, use tulle or substitute organza or organdy (polyester will be fine). Little girls do not willingly or happily wear scratchy clothing. I can guarantee that.

Of course you could put the netting on the outside of the slip, between it and the dress. Not scratchy then.

Measure twice, cut once. While this saying is useful in many ways, I have no qualms about editing my posts.
