Dollar Store Fairy Skirt to Under The Sea Themed Fairy Skirt
A Dollar Store Fairy skirt upgraded to an "Under The Sea" themed Fairy Skirt.

This is another tutu for the 2010 Tutu Drive by Samster's Mommy.
For this I used some Nemo fabric that was on sale at the fabric store, but any fish, sea themed or even a solid blue color would do for the base and then the Dollar Store fairy skirt was sewn below the waistband and the bottom layer also cut into strips to be sort of a whimsical seaweed.

    Put the Dollar Store fairy skirt over the top of underskirt and match up the elastic of the fairy skirt to just under the edge of the edge of the waistband of the underskirt, pin into place and stitch down. I then cut the 2nd layer of the fairy skirt into approximately 2 inch strips.
