Make a tutu – that’s what you do.
In less than a week, Gwyneth will turn four. One of her favorite things to do right now is dance or should I say spin and spin and spin and spin to any music. So the perfect gift for her is a tutu.
The instructions for this tutu came from Little Things to Sew by Liesl Gibson. I don’t think I’ve ever sewn with this much tulle in my life (and I can safely say, I probably never will again.) Although the pattern is quite simple, it was definitely a two person job to get all of the layers (and multiple yards) of tulle layed out and pinned together right.
I love the colors. There’s a very light yellow-brown on the top, with various shades of dark to light pink underneath.
The ribbon I used was satin instead of the recommended grograin. I knew it would be more difficult and might slip more, but it was the perfect color. I kept the tails of the ribbon long too, because she loves ribbon right now. It actually turned out similar to color as what’s in the book. I would have loved a tutu like this when I was little. I hope she likes it!
