Default Hydrangeas

Does anyone know how to attach hydrangeas to the top of a tutu? I know I can always attach the individual blossoms and put rhinestones in the centers but I love the clustered look like the one in this picture:
Violet Hydrangea Tutu Dress

Does anyone know how they got them on there? I'm totally stumped!

Whoa! That's beautiful-pricey, but beautiful. The only thing I can think of is maybe they sewed the flowers together in a chain first, like making a halo and then just attached with glue onto the bodice?? If it were me, though, I'd sew the flowers individually-especially at that price.

I would hand sew them all, too. Then use rhinestone centers.

it's a beautiful dress---hand sewn is definitely the way to go for a more polished and clean look--don't know how well you are w/ sewing by hand, but i would do it!

While it is a beautiful product....$80! I wonder if there's a crochet headband under there somewhere. Maybe she stretched a headband from the waist, ran the halter ribbon through it to pull it up and then attached the blossoms??? I haven't had my second cup of coffee yet-sorry if I sound nuts.

So is that just a longer version of a tutu with a ribbon on top for a halter?
