Default Re: Tutu apron??????????

I did a little googling and I think I was a little off base.

Based on an article I found this seems like retro chic. See below. See further below the article to see what I think are some Etsy examples. It's hard to know for sure since the article doesn't include a picture of "tulle aprons".

Styles Of Aprons Over The Years
Tulle Apron
Tulle, sheer netting, was often used when making matching aprons for a group and could be used as party favors for every woman attending a function or as "uniforms" for every woman serving at a church supper. Aprons were also given as gifts,from guest to hostess, as well as from the bride to those women helping with the wedding, or from hostess to every woman in attendance.

I think I would do it as a halter style tutu. I would cut elastic for the top (across the chest area) front only. put my tulle on that and then have another piece at the waist. I would sew ribbon to the ends of the elastic at the waist before looping the tulle around. KWIM?

I would have someone make you some felt martini glasses and other bar type of felt appliques and use them... they will clean well and not poke anyone.
