Default Bumblebee Tutu ???

Hi everyone, I'm hoping you all can offer some suggestions. Today at my show I had a lady ask me if I could make her a bee tutu. Of course I said absolutely. LOL She requested a 3 layer tutu alternating black and yellow, starting with a black waistband. I have made many tutus in the past, but never a 3 layer. I can sew, and am wondering if this is the way to go. Buying tulle on the bolt and gathering it and sewing it to an elastic waistband. What do you think? Also she wants me to attach some bees. What would you charge for something like this? She said she had an estimate from someone that wanted to charge her $150!!

Thanks in advance!

how much time/material do you expect to put into it? Do you mean three layers as in tiers or layers stacked to make it puffy?

I think she is referring to tiers, as she wants it to be striped horizontally not vertically.

Sounds more like a pettiskirt.. goosiegirl makes bumblebee tutu that is adorable, but I think it is a tutu type.

if you can i would sew it but if your going to just tied it -use the crochet band and start black,yellow,black-you can easily add tiers to that giving it a striped look-make a few flowers attached to the band or end of the tutu's that would be cute! i would love to see that when its complete-i think a custom order like that would be easily 50-100.00 depending on the cost of material/time you put into it--

That's a great idea, but I forgot to mention that it is for a grown woman. She's a bee keeper. I wonder how many crochet headbands I would need to take apart and sew back together to make a womens size 6?

Do you have a Hobby Lobby close to you? They sell the crochet material by the yard. It's in with the ribbon, and they carry black

Great! So, If I'm understanding correctly, I need to make three rows of knots. The first would be yellow and long the second black and mid length the third yellow and short?

oh! for a grown woman! umm ok i would sew it truthfully if you can, its much sturdier for an adult to move around and unknown if an adult would tear the crochet band? and $100.00 sounds better maybe more with the cost of outfitting an grown woman now i REALLY have to see this! LOL

I would sew it for sure but if you decide to do the headaband 2 should be enough. I was almost able to squeeze into one headband and I'm a 0 so I would think 2 would enough for a 6. I would charge $60. Well I guess it depends on the cost of your supplies. I would do 6 yards per layer so that is 18 yards and I pay .50 per yard so that is only $9+ less thank a $1 for elastic. The bees will probably be what cost the most. You could make sone ribbon bees and attach them.
