I don’t know what it is about little girls and tutus, but they are just cute.¬† Fortunately, they are pretty easy to make as well. (Dogs could really do without them, but I needed a model.)

Tutu Tutorial Close UpWhat You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 inch wide no-roll elastic (2 inches shorter than waist measurement)
  • 2¬†rolls of tulle (25 yards each) Hobby Lobby carries these.
  • sewing machine or needle and thread
  • scissors
  • measuring tape

Sew the elastic ends togther either using a zig zag stitch on your sewing machine or sew by hand. If you are not sure about waist measurement for a particular size, try this Wikipedia page.

Cut the tulle into strips 24 inches long. Then alternating the colors, use a slip knot to attach to the elastic. I preferred the knot to show on the outside. There are hundreds of tutorials out there for this and really anyone could make these – no skills required. Here is a good step by step tutorial from Just We Moms.

Now I just need to figure what I would need to make an adult sized one.
