Default Help on Camo tutu

I've been asked to make a camo tutu but haven't responded if its even possible yet. Has anyone constructed one in such a way? How could I do this? And how much should I charge? Thanks in advance for any advice!!

I would do a army green with brown ties and do the ties at random levels not just the bottom. Then you can use a camo ribbon to make a bow and that should bring the whole thing together. Another option is to do alternating strips of brown and green then use the camo bow. HTH

that sounds like a good idea. someone posted a picture a while back i think it was a pink tutu with camo ribbon and it looked great. i think that the camo colored tulle would look great, post a pic when u are done!!!

Ok, here's my crazy idea. you could go to a army surplus stoe and buy an old set od bdu's. cut them into strips with pinking sheers. then use the brown and light and dark green tulle and layer it that way. I don't make tutu's really ( only like 3)so that what i was thinking.
