Andrea of Love Monkey sent us this great tutorial for “The easiest no-sew tutu ever!”
You will need:
Crinoline – in a few colours
Elastic band – i used a large hair band in pink but you could always sew one from elastic just a little smaller than the child’s waist.
Cut the pieces of fabric into strips. They can vary on width and on length as this will work well for the tutu when completed. My strips were approximately 3 inches wide by 20 inches long.
Loosely knot a strip of fabric onto the elastic band – make sure that the knot is in the middle of the strip so you have approximately the same amount of fabric on either side of the knot. Do this many times, alternating colours, until the elastic is covered. It is better to overcrowd as the tutu elastic will grow once it is worn.
Do a little trimming if pieces are too long or too uneven.
That is it!! The easiest, no-sew tutu ever!! Enjoy!
