    Chain a chain as long as your measurement you took on the first step with your larger crochet hook. just a basic chain nothing complicated. :)

  • How to make a tutu dress. Tu Tu Dress(All Handmade) - Step 5
    Step 5

    when looking at your chain from the top you can see the front and the back loops of each stitch.

    *single chain through the BACK loops only all the way across.
    chain 1. Turn.
    single Chain through only the front loops across.
    chain 1. turn.

    repeat from the * till you get it as big around as you want.
    fasten off but do not join together(unless you want i suppose :P )

  • Step 6

    take one color of yarn and chain a chain about 2-3 ft. long.
    fasten off.

    take the chain and run it through the loops on the top of the top of the back of the top(man thats a lot of tops >.< )

    go down about 5 loops and cross it over(like a corset) continue till it gets to the bottom.

    this is how you will tie the back shut. basically a crochet corset top

  • Step 7

    take your tulle and decide how long you want your bottom. double that measurement and that is how long you want your strips.(i did it the easy way and just made it as long as the fabric was on the bolt and then cut it in strips)

    cut your strips into about 4in wide strips
