Default Tutu apron??????????

OK - I usually make the boutique filled sewn tutu's that are offered on the YCMT site. Love them! An older lady approached me at my show on Saturday and REEEEEEAAAALLLLLLLYYYY wants me to make her a tutu apron that she can wear to serve cocktails. Trust me, at first I thought she was joking. She is not. 2 questions:
1. I need ideas on the "filling" for the pocket layer - somethings to do with drinks, but that won't poke through, or damage the tulle. I usually use flower petals, jingle bells, fake snow, etc... HELP???

2. Ideas on how to make it into an apron??? I am assuming I will make the apron tie, and then gather the waistband of the tutu, not insert elastic at all, and sew it to the tie???? ack!!!!!

You ladies have never let me down in the past!!!!

Don't they make that shiny confetti in the shape of like martini glasses and stuff? You could use the larger pieces so it wasn't so pokey I guess. LOL sorry that's all I got. I still haven't had my coffee yet this morning

I was just searching for retro apron ideas the other day and came across this:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/60619206...ns?ref=pr_shop

All her aprons are soooo cute! Some have tulle. Maybe you could make one like this but instead of the pink fabric use tulle???

Hope this helps or inspires you!

I'm picturing something between this (without the top or back):

strawberry shortcake
http://www.etsy.com/listing/56894148...u-costume-tutu

and this

Tutu Ruffle Apron
http://www.thehobbymommy.com/2009/12...etplus-so.html

But my guess is she's thinking something along the lines of the bottom of a French Maid costume, but hopefully longer (and not the "naughty" Halloween variety).

I think it could be really pretty if it's not too full or flouncy and you find the right fabric for the apron part.

HTH

Thanks ladies! I know !!! This is tricky! She doesn't want actual fabric on it at all, just a tutu made into an apron, if that makes sense. She did talk about wearing it with tights and pumps!!!! I asked if she wanted a fabric part on the front, but she said she doesn't want it to be functional at all!!! Just fun! ACK!!!! I am on the hunt for drink stuff!!!!

Okay, forgive the paint picture....but I'd do a modified tutu dress for all practical purposes. Use a cut piece of elastic at the top and tie the pieces around it, then another piece of elastic at the waist and tie them to that, but leave tails long enough to make the tutu part at the bottom. Then just tie two pieces on the top so she can tie it around her neck. You could trim it in something sparkly, like the wire garland stuff maybe? You could also sew a pocket on the tutu part if you just layered a couple pieces of the tulle and sewed it on by hand.

I don't know...
