Tutu Tutorial.

Sunday, November 20, 2011

So, I am in love with little girls tutus!


I think they are not only perfect for pictures and special occasions but everyday! I started making them as a hobby and thought I would share the super easy tutorial on how to make your very own! 

Here is what you will need..

Tulle 
Elastic 
Ribbon 

And that's it! 

First cut everything into the right sizes..

Newborn - 6months: waist 14", length 6/7"
6-12 months: waist 16", length 7/8"
12months - 2Toddler: waist 18", length 9"
2Toddler - 3Toddler: waist 19", length 10"
4 Toddler - 5Toddler: waist 20", length 11"
5Toddler - 6Toddler: waist 21", length 12"
Make sure to cut everything an inch larger than the sizes above.

Okay so then I sew the two ends of the elastic together.

 
Next take to two pieces of tulle and cross them like so..



I put my elastic around a paper towel roll, makes it easier to tie the tulle.
Next, wrap the crossed end under the elastic..


Reach under and through the loop grasping the strip. Pull the tail through the loop.

This then makes a slip knot, pull it tight. But be careful tying tulle strips around the elastic to not stretch out the band.

 Continue doing this around the waist band.

 Then add your favorite ribbon, tying it in a bow...
 And finally your done!!

  1. So cute, I don't have any children yet, but someday and one day I will have to give this a try! Maybe even for a niece so that I have an excuse to make it sooner rather than later! Love it!

  3. About how much tulle do you use in one tutu for a 12 month old? I read on another tutorial that 40 yards or so would be needed. Would you agree?
