How to Make a Tutu
Are you looking on learning How to make a tutu for your little one or to sell? First things first..making a tutu is easy! While a “no sew” tutu is nearly no sew, you will still need a needle and thread to secure the elastic waistband. After that, its so super simple! I have many no sew tutu tutorials here on MomDot that will guide you from one step to the next!
I recommend using 6-inch tulle rather than bolts of tulle. If you need to use bolts, you can, just measure and cut in long strips to make attaching easier. If you need a 6 inch long tutu, you will need to double it to 12 inches before you tie it on. Pre-measure your tulle out and have it all ready so you can basically go from start to finish. For example, a general rule is that it should be about 22-24 inches in length so when you fold it in half, it hangs long enough. If you measure 24 inches of tulle, your skirt will be approximately 12 inches in length.
