I made a tutu for a friend of mine last night. It took about 1 hour and is really easy to make. The finished product is adorable.First cut strips about 1" in width of tulle. Length will vary depending on child's size, but for this one (2 year old) the length was around 18"(final length after attaching was 9"). Then you need to cut elastic (1/2 in. width is what I used) to the circumference of the child's waist. Sew elastic to create circle waistband. Now you will create a loop with a strand of tulle around elastic and put ends through.
Pull the loop tight and continue all the way around the elastic.
The final product takes about 1-1.5 yards of tulle (depending on length of finished product). However the more you put on it, the fluffier it gets. So easy and virtually no sewing. What little girl doesn't like to dress up.
