Thing 18: A Big White Tutu

IMG_6613 IMG_6609 IMG_6612

My daughter had a birthday party to attend, and this is what I came up with to send with her. It’s super simple – 7.5 yards of white tulle, folded in half lengthwise. I put in a 1” seam on the fold, making a casing for my elastic. After I fed the elastic through, I sewed the ends of my elastic together, tried it on my daughter, and trimmed off enough so that she could comfortably walk. Easy peasy! The little pink bow is hand stitched right onto the elastic where it meets together. I didn’t even sew the tulle back to itself!
