I feel that an essential part of my preparation in having a grand-daughter is making her some tutus. I may be over doing things here but I really don't think this one is quite full enough.... It definitely won't fit her as a new born, so back to the drawing board there.....
(Thank you Micah and Gramps for telling me the skirt was glowing)
I'll be making another soon but wanted your feed back on this one.
I chose three colors. Two shades of green and one blue. I cut them in strips, layered the strips, sewed and gathered, then sandwiched it between the satin ribbon. I threaded the elastic through and finished sewing it up.
I've seen that most people choose to tie the netting on an elastic waist band. I liked the idea of a ribbon adding more texture. I wasn't careful enough with the ribbon on this one so the seam in back is a bit rough. It'll still make a fun dress up skirt for a 2-3 year old.
What do you think?
Interestingly enough I made Jess plenty of princess outfits when she was a little girl but never a tutu.
Which do you prefer for your girly-girls?
