I am calling this the "quick 'n dirty no sew tutu"...oh, and can I add 'cheap'?
1. Cut elastic to length and sew ends to form waistband.
2. Cut tulle into strips. My tulle was folded in half so I cut strips and then folded them in half again to get this length (toddler). I would use the full width for a child 5+ so it is longer.
3. "Fishtail" cut the ends...(I am not sure if this is the term) fold ends in half and snip from fold angling down to ends to form a triangle. This results in two points.
4. Tie strips onto elastic.
This is roughly 4 1/2 yards of tulle. I need about 1-2 yards to finish. At 77 cents a yard at W-mart...I am about $4.20 (including the elastic) into it thus far and about 2 hours....if that. Well worth it for this wonderous garment of pink fluffiness.
After all, everyone should spend a least one moment of their life in a tutu.
