Put together a great Halloween costume with the ideas in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- Measuring tape
- Non-rolling 3/4" elastic
- Needle and thread
- 75 yd. of 6" tulle
- Sewing machine (optional)
Measure the waist
Measure the waist of the person receiving the tutu.
Cut a piece of elastic 2 inches shorter than the person’s waist measurement.
Sew the elastic into a circle
Overlap the raw edges of the elastic and sew them together to form a circle.
Determine length and cut tulle
Determine how long you would like the tutu to be. Cut the tulle into strips that are double the length.
Fold the strip in half and loop ends
Fold a strip of tulle in half and place the looped end behind the elastic. Then pull the ends in front of the elastic through the loop and pull it tight.
Keep folding and looping until you have completely covered the elastic with tulle strips. Give the tutu to that special someone and enjoy their happy dance.
