Default feather tutu

I agreed to help a friend make a tutu with feathers for her daughter's dance recital. I know what I want the end product to look like and I have a few ideas for attaching feathers to tulle, but thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas?

Here are some pictures from etsy... SUPER CUTE... to give an idea.

Cute! I've always wanted to make one too. I'd just make a tiered tutu...one made of the tulle on the bolts...and attach the feathers to the edges.... kinda like a pettiskirt.

Yep, that is exactly what I was thinking! Maybe even "looping" the feathers around the knot at the end. So there wouldn't be any seams. I just love the one that is full feathers. and I'm thinking maybe she ties them (like you would with tulle) with the rope/string of the feathers.

The images are watermarked with their owner's name... and I wasn't saying they were mine

All the same, I'm not here to start drama. I'll remove them.

It's okay. A lot of us have done that at some point

Can you share the links again? I want to make feather tutus, too.

Hmmm...maybe it's just looped from side to side. Similar to "U" stacked on top of each other. I would sew or put glue on each end and let the middle hang. I also thought about the option of placing the feathers on fabric and making it a sort of an apron, too.

That is a great idea!!! I hadn't really thought about just gluing the feathers in to the fabric, but that will work perfect! Then maybe I'll do marabou as a filler thanks!
