Isn't she cute in tutu? This is very easy to make! No need for a sewing machine to make one.
I've been meaning to make some tutus for Ykaie and my other nieces since last year. I finally bought different colors of tulles for 20 pesos/yard. I was able to use 2 yards for this tutu. Here's How I made it.
I chose lavender and lime green color combo for this one.
I measured Ykaie's waist then cut the elastic and hand sewn the ends to form a waistband. You can also use elastic headbands for this.
I measured how long I want the tutu and doubled it. You have to double the length measured because you are going to fold each strip into half when tying onto the waistband.
I folded the tulle in half, then folded in half again. I just kept folding. It's easier to cut strips this way. It's up to you how wide you want the strips to be.
I tied each strip onto the waistband using Cow hitch knot. Just check out the site for clear illustrations of tying a cow hitch knot. I just kept on tying all the way around.
Here's the finished product!
And here's Ykaie wearing her first tutu.
