I got the tulle that comes on a spool to make it easier...I know it's a little more expensive but it was on sale for 50% off. Plus It's just easier for me to store that way. I used white and lime green normal tulle, and also found lime green with glitter in it! When I was finished making this tutu I had glitter ALL.OVER.THE.FLOOR!!! I vacuumed and I'm still finding it. My sister will thank me. :)
This next one is a Pinkalicious tutu. I gave it to my friend Jen's daughter, Allie—her 3rd birthday is coming up, too! She's having a Pinkalicious party so I wanted to give her something to go along with the theme. If you look closely, you'll see I also added some glittery lace strips for added sparkle and interest :)
Here's sweet Allie wearing her new tutu and clippie.
And even at 11 years old, Inky knows how to play with the best of them ;)
If you'd like to make a tutu for the little girl in your life, here's the YouTube Video I found most helpful.
And here are my tutu measurements:
Strips: 24" long, 4-6" wide, about 60 of them
Elastic waistband: 3/4" width, 18" long, sewn together
