How much tulle for a table skirt
How much tulle do i need to cover 6 feet table
If you are planning to make a fuller table skirt for 6 feet table, you can either cover all 4 sides of it. or else you can cover 3 sides and can leave back side.
I am assuming here that you want 30″ height table skirt. Tulle comes in 2 widths – 54″ and 108″ wide… YOu can buy it here at Fabric.com at reasonable rates in various colors by selecting Tulle from sidebar. If you buy 54″ wide, you can not cut 54″ into 2 30″ wide stripes so after taking 31″ wide fabric (taking 1″ seam allowance), remaining 23″ will be wasted. If you buy 108″ wide tulle, you can get 3 stripes of 31″ with remaining 13″. So i would prefer 108″ wide fabric.
3 sided fuller table skirt for 6 feet table will need approx 71 yard of stripes so if you buy 108″ wide fabric, you need 71 / 3 = 24 Yard . It will cover one longer side and 2 shorter sides.
If you want to cover one shorter side and two longer sides, than 3 sided table skirt needs 95 yards. Means 108″ wide tulle, you need 95/3 = 32 yards.
4 sided fuller table skirt for 6 feet table will need approx 112 yard of fabric. so it will be 112/3 = 38 yard for 108″ wide fabric.
Do you want to measure it for any other size of table? Just contact me and i will let you know how much fabric do you need.

Your questions and Comments –
Hi Deb, To cover 30″ High 5 foot round table, circumference of 5 foot table is 189 Inch.
I assume you bought 108″ wide tulle, gathering these to 3 times and adding 2 layered of tulle to your skirt. So you need approx 380″ or in yards its 10.5 yards of tulle. Cut it in 31″ stripes. Refer pic below. 3 stripes will be cutted in 31″ , join them as single stripe and gather these 3 times. now divide whole length in 2 parts, put 1 over other and sew and wrap around table. Remaining 15″ stripe scarp you can use in other creative decoration.
Hi Jothika, 70 cm heigh table with length 150 cm and width 75 cm, if you want to make it for 3 sides 2 shorter and 1 longer, your table skirt length would be 75 + 150 + 75 = 300 cm. YOu will use 3 times gather and 2 layers of tulle so it would be 6 times i.e 300 X 6 cm = 1800 cm tulle. if your tulle fabric width is 72 cm (keeping 2 cm for seam allowance) or more you can buy 1800 cm or 20 yards tulle, if your fabric width is 144 cm or more, you can buy 900 cm or 10 yards. and if it is 216 cm or more, you can buy 7 yards of tulle.
Hi Erica, i assume your table height is standard ie. 30″ and you need 86″ long skirt. YOu are already having 6″ precut rolls of tulle which you will gather 3 times to make it ruffled. Now you can add these ruffled tulle over some base fabric. base fabric can be cotton or other lining or cheap matching fabric which you can buy from fabric clearance sale section.
As your rolls are 6″, you can add them 4″ apart on 30″ high lining fabric so then you will need 8 lines of these precut 6″ tulle. so yo uwill need 86″ X 3 X 8 = 2064″ long rolls or in yards it will be approx 23 yards. It will look like this of my table cover.
