|She likes how full & sparkly it was :)|
Technically I did sew a little, since I made a loop of elastic by overlapping the ends and stitching them. But I just knotted the tulle on (2 strips at a time).
|I used 18" strips and it's just long enough for now|
It's very puffy, I don't know if there are any guidelines about how full tutus are supposed to be. I just kept adding tulle until the whole elastic was covered. I used a bit more than I thought I would. I was hoping to get 2 tutus this size (Danielle is a 3T) out of the 100 yards of 6" wide tulle I bought, but I have less than half of the rolls left, so I will be making a smaller size.
|I can't believe I waited so long|
to make my little dancer a tutu!
I used light pink, fuchsia, lavender, white and a little bit of silver glittery tulle. I figure it will go with quite a few of her clothes (despite how I "styled" it with a plain white shirt for the pictures). It's pretty and girly and I think she likes it. I'm going to ask her teacher if she can wear it to dance class for their last session.
