Default Help - see through white halter tutu!

So I made a halter tutu dress for my dd to wear for her dedication - I love it but when she wears it, it's pretty see-through.
Do lighter coloured halters need a double layer? Will it still be see-through? Do you just wear something under it?
She wasn't in the mood to model (nap time) but I wanted to show you a pic of what I mean...

Any advice? What should I do? TIA!

I would just put her in a onesie or maybe add a bit more tulle. Poor baby wasn't having any of it, huh!?

Oh, hmmm....that's true! Maybe just some leggings, then. I have seen some at Target that have little ruffles at the bottom and are so very cute. Don't know if you could still find them though....I saw them probably about a month ago.

Can you put a piece of white satin under the tulle.
It would give it a beautiful finished look for the dedication ceremony, and it would keep the scratchy tulle off her skin..even the soft tulle can feel scratchy with that much on your skin.
Or if you do more layers of tulle it would help cover her.

I agree with lining it, if you can. Other wise try getting a thin strap tank top and leggings.

Oh good idea! Never thought of lining it... Although I'm not the most advanced sewer... Maybe I can find a pattern somewhere.

Thanks ladies!

Haha. I love the model's face reminds me of when I'm trying to cox my own daughter into just "one photo" while she's screaming. Lol
I made my daughter a bubble tube top to go under a dress like this once... Just elastic casing at the top and bottom and it worked great! Then I had her wear a diaper cover.

Very cute though!

It would not be hard to line.....measure around her chest, under her arms, like you did for the elastic...

buy the satin right off the bolt...you'll need about double her measurement.

just hem the bottom to the correct length and after to tack it on you can sew the 2 ends together.

I'm no good with the elastic thread, to make it as easy as possible....just strtch out the elastic on the halter as much as you can and hand tack it all the way around while the elastic is stretched...then when you release th elastic it will 'ruffle up' underneath.

I hope that makes sense, I'm not really good at explaining these things!....
