Fancy Dress Tutu

Last week I had to go to a fancy dress party, and needed a tutu to wear to it!

I searched online and found lots of tutorials for how to make a tutu, so after a trip to the fabric shop to pick up pink tutu fabric off I went!

I found the rotary cutter the quickest way to cut up the fabric into lots of strips. Lots and lots of strips (9 metres cut into 6 inch strips!), until I had a huge pile of them:

And it didn’t even require any sewing – you just fold each strip in half and knot around a piece of ribbon that will fit your waist.

It’s very hard to take a photo of the finished thing because it’s so big, but here is the finished tutu!

P.S. I won the fancy dress competition 🙂
