Exclamation Help! Need step by steps on how to make a halter tutu dress

I am wanting to make a ball gown style halter tutu dress ( the kind where the tulle falls down from her chest to the floor) for my one year old, but have never done it before and cant decide what would be the best way t0 go. I have seen them made with elastic bands and with crochet head band tops. Which works the best and how would I make it out of 3 different colors so the colors are interchanging not just one color on top of each other. Also if I were to use the headband for the body I want to tulle to cover the head band all the way up to the top so she is covered all over. How would I do this? Another thing, is how to i connect the ribbon for the halter top to the crochet part or how could i make regular straps?

this are two pictures of what I am trying to do, the gold one is the one with the colors I will be using and the other is the crochet headband style i am also trying to do.

I make mine with elastic and then a optional sash and optional flower clip that can be worn on the tutu or in the hair.

I own The Little Pea and I made the picture that you posted as an example of the crochet band dress. I prefer to use the crochet because it is less work. I don't have to measure, cut, and sew the crochet bands like you would have to do on the elastic. I would suggest to google how to make a tutu dress and look at YouTube and just compare the techniques that will work the best for you. From the instructions you should be able to figure out how to do the straps. My only suggestion is that you use the precut tulle or you will waist all of your time cutting.

I've been wondering about this myself.

The other option you don't include in your poll is the one where the top part is woven out of strips of tulle. I'm sure that is more labor intensive. And probably much harder to get it to look right.

I've seen a couple on Etsy but I can't find any information on how to weave the top.

I do the empire waist style ones with two elastics. It is quite time consuming but I really like the way it looks in the end. Here is a pic of my dd's Halloween costume last year
