The day I posted my daughters 9 month pictures, my friend Tiffany asked me if I made the tutu. Indeed I did and it was the same tutu I used for her 4 month pictures with a slight modification. I don’t recall where I saw the tutorial first. I’ve probably read a dozen. This one seems to be the most detailed and picture heavy. (Plus, I also love that blog!) I should have used elastic but didn’t have any on hand the night I was making it. I used ribbon instead. It works ok but I think the elastic would work better. I’m going to spare you the details on how to do it, the internet certainly doesn’t need another tutorial on that! A big tip, pack those strips in on the waist band as much as you can! The more you have, the more full the skirt will be! Also, the tutorial shows cutting the tulle from a bolt which would probably be the bulk of your time spent on the project. I used pre-cut rolls and cut those to (twice) my skirt length. Way faster and I think I only used 3 for this skirt!
Here’s the original (her 4 month shots) without knots.
And the modified (her 9 month shots) with knots about an inch or so from the end of each piece.
Which do you prefer? I think I like the knots better.
