No-Sew Tutu

Does it really need more of an explanation?  A tutu is a costume favorite, but you don’t need to buy one… you can make it yourself with no sewing knowledge whatsoever.

You Will Need:

  • 4 Yards Tulle (for adult size you may want at least 6 yards)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

1.) Cut the ribbon the length of the waist measurement plus 15 inches. Tie knots in the ribbon 7 inches in from each end.

2.) Roll the tulle into a long tube and cut 4 inch pieces.

3.) Once your pieces are cut you should have a pile of  rolled tulle strips. Unroll a strip and fold it in half end touching end. If this is too long for your needs, you may want to cut at the half, making two strips.

4.) Taking a strip of tulle, fold in half (end touching end). Starting at one knot, put the loop/folded-end on the ribbon. Then pull the ends through the loop thus tying the strip around the ribbon.

5.) Continue tying the strips around the ribbon until all are knotted on.

Viola! A Tutu. Tie around the waist of your little ballerina/fairy/princess.
