Default Re: First Petti-tutu -- How is it?! :)

How old is your DD and how long did you make this?

I think I can help you answer someone else's question about how you knotted the pink strips so they wouldn't slide off. It looks like rather than merely knotting the pink onto the brown, you double knotted it with the brown.

In other words, you tied the pink on and then you took the end of the brown strip and knotted it with one of the two pink strips.

My daughter is 3 and this skirt is 13" long. For a regular tutu I usually make it about 8". For a 6 year old I would probably do about 16"

I actually didn't do a double knot. It was only one knot. I wrapped the pink around the brown a couple of times then took the bottom of the brown and tied it to the pink end furthest from it. I tried the double knot and didn't like the way it looked. Not sure if that made sense lol
