Tutus are such a multipurpose dress-up because they can be used for a princess costume, a fairy costume or a ballerina costume. This tutu is fast and easy to make, and for all of you non-sewers out there, it does not require a sewing machine.
You will need:
5 yards of tulle (I used 2.5 yards each of pink and green.)
1 yard 1- 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon
5 yards of 1/4 inch ribbon (optional)
If you chose to add the 1/4 inch ribbon you will need to cut the
ribbon at twice the length of the tutu and fold the ribbon. Then tie it
to the waist ribbon just as you did the tulle strips. I tied the
ribbon every eight strips, so after 4 of each color.
Continue tying until all of the space between the 2 marks is full. Tie a
knot in the waist ribbon at each mark so that the knotted tulle strips
do not slip out of place. Your tutu is finished! Just tie it in a bow
around your child's waist.
