You Will Need

Reasonably Priced
  • How to make a tutu. No Sew Tutu - Step 1
    Step 1

    first you need lots of tulle. I really don't know how much you need, it depends on how many colors you pick out. like me I did 5 yards of black 5 yards of gray and 5 yards of purple. or just one color I start with 10 yards. It took me 4 trips to the store. that alot of tull but I'm a plus size woman. for you small girls it shouldn't take much.

    Step 2

    First, you're going to need to cut the tulle into strips, cut stripes about 6 inches wide. this is, if you can't find them in rolls. I have to buy my in yards. Then measure and mark your size and cut elastic. To me this is easy part, tie elastic to chair to chair like a clothe line.

    Step 3

    now your can just tie the tulle on easy and tight togather.

    Place the tulle in a "U" shape underneath the elastic. Try to keep the ends as close to even as possible to one another. Again, though, don't worry about perfection because slight variances actually add flair.

    Step 4

    Bring the two upper portions of the tulle "U" over the elastic. Together, pull them underneath the curved bottom of the "U" for the beginnings of a knot. Pull tightly, securing the tulle against the elastic.

    Step 5

    Repeat this step until you have went all around your elastic. There should be no elastic visible when completed. If you wish to make a 2 or more color Tutu, simply alternate colors as you continue this step. before your get clost to your size tie a knot in the elastic and keep on going utill the knot is cover with tulle

    Step 6

    When completed, your tutu waistline should like the one in this photo. As you can see, there is no elastic showing. if you want you can glue a bow to the back.

    now you are really for all most every fairytale. dark or light fairy or you want to be a rockstar or puckrocker or ballet dancer. you can make them short or long. this one I make it long in the back and short in the front. I like my tutu so much I thinking about making a long wedding dress. like the skirt be a tutu and just buy a top at a bride store.

    Step 7
