Step 1: Step: Gathering and Preparing Your Materials
-3/8" Elastic cut to 4" smaller than model's waist (it stretches A LOT while you tie the fabric on. I had to cut some out of mine)
-Strips of fabric 2" wide by double the length of your model's measurement from waist to knee (so for my daughter who measures 10" from waist to knee, my strips were 2" x 20")
-Pinking shears to cut the strips of fabric
-Fabric scraps to make a fabric flower
Step 2: Step 2: Putting It Together
Putting it together is easy though. Simply sew your elastic together to form a waistband, then just tie the strips on! For an easy way to tie the fabric strips on the elastic band, slide the elastic around your thigh so you can use two hands to tie the strips on. Then I added a basic Kanzashi fabric flower to the waistband. As my daughter says, "Ta-Da!" Adorable tutu complete.
