I'm going to participate in two pride festivals in a few weeks and I like to do my own costumes. So I decided to finally do that tutu skirt that I'll been wanting for so long.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting the Fabrics
I live in a small town and we don't even have a store were we can buy tulle in different colors. Lucky me I was in Stockholm so I took the chance to but what I needed.
I measured my waist and knot the elastic together. It is better if you use a wider elastic but I couldn't find it so I used the first thing that I found at home.
Step 3: Cut the Pieces
I cut the tulle in half three times until I had 10 cm wide strips.
Step 4: Getting Started
I made a simple loop and knot around the elastic (you tulle is folded in half then a small loop around the elastic). How many spools of tulle you will need will depend on the length and how full you want the skirt to be.
Step 5: First Color
I started with red and honesty I had to look after pictures to be sure about the order :-)
Step 6: And There You Have It
I took me about an hour to complete the skirt. I have enough fabric to do another one. I'm gonna try another tutu skirt that I saw on Pinterest. I hope you like it.
Step 7: Update
I bought wider elastic and used the same technique and I got a better result.
