Post Anyone made this?

Hi there girls! I am wanting to make a feather tutu/dress for my daughter for Easter. I have made several tutus and was wondering if anyone had any success with adding the feathers, I have seen them all over Etsy and I am just drooling! She HAS to have one

http://www.etsy.com/listing/91223086...845_tutu_dress

http://www.etsy.com/listing/85991697...=all&ga_facet=

http://www.etsy.com/listing/86027537...=all&ga_facet=
Also I have never done a tutu "dress" is it the larger sized headband used for the top of the dress verses the small ones? Also what do you ladies put under the headband to hide your childs skin? I have attached some pics of examples any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated! I like both styles its just going to boil down to which one is easier to make

*Size of headband for top(she will be 7 months at Easter)
*How to affix the feather boa to tutu? If I just done the tutu instead of the dress I know I could sew it to the elastic...but without elastic I'm not sure I could sew it to headband??
*Should I use higher quality feathers instead of HL brand?

Wow question overload!

Thanks for any help!

Those are super cute! I don't personally make tutu dresses, but yes they do use the larger bands. But with her being so little you could do the small bands too. I would think it would have to have a lining of some sort because those chandelle boas can be very itchy. Another thing with her going to be 7 months, she might try to eat it! Choose your color carefully! I know I did the anne geddes flower hat with my daughter when she was little and she put one of the flowers in her mouth and the dye bled all over her. I don't know if feathers do that or not, but you might test it out first!

Thank you for the heads up! I honestly did not even THINK about that! Any tips/ideas on making this ladies??? I would love to have some feedback from someone who has made/makes these and is willing to offer some words of wisdom!

I have just ordered some ostrich boas, which I think would be softer. They are about 20.00 a piece so a little pricier.. I dont think it would be hard to attach the feathers to the tulle, a little time consuming. I have a pink halter dress but I sew mine so it does not have the headband bodice.

Hand sew, but only stich every couple inches. If you sew it all the way it won't be able to stretch and the stitches will break. I used dental floss and that was a strong hold.

Nobody has really told on how they do their dresses. I think that is a secret that they are keeping to themselves. LOL. I understand why though

To me you make it like any other tutu just longer. Stitch every couple inches like that other lady had mentioned for boa.

Trial and error. It can get expensive doing that but I would rather do it on a small child then a larger one

Ok. Here's some places I found with some tuts on them. I'll link them. Not exactly what you are looking for but they might give you an idea!
