So the reason this post is under "crafting" is not because it was becoming a lonely category jealous of "sewing"....but because this is practically a no-sew tutu. The only sewing is 1 line on the elastic band, which perhaps could be done by hand.
Tulle: I was lucky enough to inherit a bunch of tulle from my great aunt, June. June was a wedding planner at her church for centuries and when we were cleaning out her attic for her, you wouldn't believe the AWESOME left over wedding decorations she had accumulated...;-) I had to turn away many fake rose centerpieces and plastic table cloths....but I did glady take the mountain of white and pink tulle!
Elastic: I measure my waist and then subtracted 3 inches. Cut this length.
Thread: To sew the elastic into a circle. I used a machine, but you might get away with strong hand sewing.
1. Take your elastic waistband and sew the 2 ends together to make a circle.
2. Cut your tulle into strips to the desired length of your skirt. Mine strips were about 4 inches wide by 36 inches long. The picture shows that I cut on the fold so the length is only 18 inches (half). I cut about 10 strips at a time so that I wouldn't cut too many.
4. And....that's it!! Gotta love a 3 step tutorial!!! Now I am sure there is some dress up day at the Y that I can sport this at!! Yes... we wear tutus and other ridiculous get-ups while workin up a sweat!! Haha! My girls Jennie and Charlotte might own more tutus than tennis shoes! ;-)
