Default How to make a "lined" tutu dress?

I have a customer request for a satin lined tutu dress. Any ideas? I tie mine on but have also sew them in the past. I just don't know how I'd get the lining in there? I'm a very beginning sewer so I'm kind of clueless!

HELP!? LOL

Could someone please answer this because I am wondering the same thing? I am also a beginner to sewing and am lost when it comes to attaching the lining. Thanks!

Adding lining to anything is a step up from beginning sewing (imo). I've been sewing since I was 9 years old and lining wasn't something I learned immediately. Best advice? Go to a fabric store and purchase a pattern.

I would suggest that they buy a half slip (do they still make those??) and have the child wear it under the tutu. A lined tutu dress goes for double what "regular" ones do.

I usually do make my dd wear a half slip when she wears hers. She doesn't like to do that tho. I was hoping it would be easy to just add a lining, but looks like she might be stuck with wearing the slip. Thanks anyway!

I'm also trying to figure this out and was going to just figure it out through trial and error, I know they sell lining fabric that is stretchy or you can get lycra for it, I'm new to sewing and using a machine so it'll be a LOT of trial and error for me to get this right, and yeah I'd sell it for more than the regular tutu

I think I am going to attempt it too. It really doesn't seem like it would be that hard. My sister sews all of my nieces clothes. I think I will see if she can help me. Good luck trying.

I'm curious... why would you need to line it?

My suggestion would be to use the tulle you purchase off the bolt, plus some type of liner fabric (china silk, etc.) Cut 2 times your chest measurement by whatever length you need. I'd probably do 3-4 layers of tulle. Hem the bottom of the lining then sew all the short sides together. For the top, just make a casing and thread your elastic then sew it all shut. You could add straps too.
