Last year I ventured into the world of tutu's! Huge hit with my girls, but not so much at our craft show last year. For this years show, I decided to add a leotard with each tutu and jazz them up a bit - huge success!!! On the Saturday of our show, I sold all the ballet costumes and had to make more for the next day.
These tutu's could not be any easier to make. I simply use an elastic hair band and slip knot the tulle around it. The leotards were a swimsuit doll pattern that my mom helped me to perfect (I made many before they fit the dolls properly!)
I'm still undecided about whether the tutu's are a bit too long and foofy for the dolls; I may try a few a bit shorter and see which I like better.
One of my favorites! Burgendy and gold tutu with roses and a matching leotard.
Dark purple velvet leotard with white roses and a purple and white tutu. Another cute one!
Green flower fairy tutu - yellow and green sparkle tulle with flower and pearl accents.
I am having so much fun creating these; each one is unique and fun!!
