Too Too Tutu

I've always loved this idea, and I finally got around to making one. What little lady would not love a tutu to twirl around in? I'm telling you, as I made this one for my niece, I was secretly wishing it was big enough for me!

It could not be simpler to make, though, so maybe with a bit more elastic I could pull it off. The only real sewing you do, is to attach the two end of the elastic securely together. After that, you simply double knot the strips of tulle around the elastic in an attractive way. The spooled tulle is way easier to deal with for this. You just want to cut it to twice the length from your girly's belly to her knees - or longer if you want. The key part is to remember to double that length. Then you just tie away.

I think this took just about 30 minutes to complete. My niece lives out of town, so I haven't seen her in this yet, but her mom says she's dancing everywhere in it! So, I'll probably be making another one for her little sister in a while, when she's able to stand up and flit about.
