What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 178: Tulle Time


Clown couture at its finest.

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

According to WWD – and if anyone knows, it’s them – tulle is one of the hottest Sprint 2018 fashion trends. Challenge accepted! Tulle is a great fabric. You can dress it up or down, and it has uses as divergent as housewares and jewelry.

My wanderings turned up many sad, and bad, and completely mad offerings, complete with makers who are trying too hard or not hard enough, but there were loads of amazing, stunning, exceptionally lovelywonderful creations, as well! And if you’re gonna go tulle, you may as well go big!

Ice cream cone. Or is it

Gorgeous! By AvaJewelryCrafts

Question for seller: is this dishwasher safe?

Tulle statement necklace. I think they meant to spell that “tool.”

So wonderful! By our friends at MyBuddyBling

This looks like a skin condition

Magnificent! By YAROSLAVNA74

I’ll bet not even Martha Stewart knows how to get poop out of tulle.

What are these “rock star” socks made of? Tulle. And depression.

I’m not really a doll person, but this is lovely! By the maker with all the letters, Szyjepaninamaszynie

When you start dressing up your jarred goods, it’s time to admit you have a problem.

Elmo has never looked so pissed.

While I couldn’t pull it off, I’m definitely a big fan! By Abakaffabrics

  1. I adore that space dress! I couldn’t pull it off; most likely someone would think a display from the Hayden Planetarium had wandered off (yes, I know it’s not called the Hayden Planetarium anymore, but I can’t remember its new name, so…)

  2. I’m sorry but why do people dress up animals.? I do love the Iris thing and Elmo’s color is grand.

  3. I like the avajewelry bracelet….though it does remind me of a puzzle (the missing link) that I had as a child.

  6. The fabric in that last dress is stunning. Is it animal cruelty to dress up your chicken? I think it ought to be. I have used tulle as window treatments but I don’t think I have ever owned a piece of tulle clothing.

  7. Good finds, Donna! I really like several of them… and I really *don’t* like the rest. Kitschy! Lol! I think – no, I KNOW – that I would not be able to pull off a single one of them. Isn’t it amazing how far tulle has come from wedding veils? 😀
