Default Tutu help...please!

Ok ladies, i have only made a tutu once for my daughter, it was just a try. I used the tulle my mom had saved in a box and luckily it was cut just perfect so i made a dress out of it. My aunt asked me to make her a basket for a gift. She wants me to include a tutu and some other fun stuff, i really have no idea what to put in it. i was thinking of a tutu, a kufi w/lg bow, and a interchangeable headband. What do u ladies think? Anyway the tutu is for a 4-5 year old. What measurements would i use? and last time i measured my daughters waist and when i finished the tutu fell right off. So if any of you can please help me out, id really appreciate it. Also, any suggestions on what colors to use, she said, it didn't matter.

For 4-5 year olds, I use a 19-21 inch waist.

Colors are endless! I love shocking pink with oranges together, or aqua blues with turquoise. If you want it to be more traditional, a light pink, dark pink and a touch of chocolate brown is pretty, too.

Have fun!

I just made rainbow ones for my dds and I LOVE them-I've only done the 2-color combos before, but all the little girls at the bday party went gaga over the multi-rainbow ones-here's the thread. I used an 18 inch waist for my just turned 7-yr-old, but she's got a tiny frame. HTH

I use a 20" waist and a 13" length. As far as colors go it's so hard! I am attaching one of my best sellers that is a medium pink, white and yellow and also another tutu that is not really rainbow but it's bright and fun. Maybe they will give you ideas or inspiration! Have Fun!

That is adorable, ok so how do u make it look like all the colors are mixed, in other words it does not look like a pattern, it does not look, white, pink, orange, white, pink orange... Do u get me? It looks like its more than one layer.

I'm not really sure...I just measure the tulle. For example...for a 13" tutu I cut 26" strips of tulle. Each strip is then 6" wide and 26" long. If I am making a tutu that is 3 colors I would arrange the tulle on the waistband as follows: 2 pink, 2 yellow, 2 white. It just blends itself naturally really. Hope this helps!
