Default My first sewn tutu

I finally attempted a sewn tutu and I think it turned out pretty good. I used the pleating method and made three layers. It could probably use more layers. I bought 12" tulle on the roll so I didn't have to cut any ribbon off of a bolt. I also used 5/8" ribbon to trim the ege and 1 1/2" ribbon to make a waistband. I used a piece of elastic sewn to two long pieces of ribbon and threaded it throught the waistband so the tutu can be tied. What do you think? Any advice would be great because I would like to try and sell these. TIA!

Yes - that is my daughter. She likes to pose for me. I painted her face earlier in the day so that's what's on her face. I told her she could have this tutu and she wants me to put a cutout of a black poodle on it to make it into a poodle skirt.

Sorry if I was confusing. I will try to explain it a little better.

I used the pleating technique found in this youtube video:
YouTube - Pleating a tutu

Instead of pleating and pinning as I went, I made my first pleat and put it under my presser foot on my sewing machine and with a zigzag stitch I sewed a little bit. Then I made my next pleat and sewed a little bit more. Basically I sewed the pleats down as I was folding the pleats. Does that make sense?

Then I sewed the layers to a piece of ribbon and placed another piece of ribbon on top of it and sewed them together to form a casing. Then I sewed two pieces of 5/8" ribbon to a piece of elastic in put it throught the casing. To wear you just tie the ribbon in the back.

Very cute, you should make a tut with the next one you make! Definitely sellable, IMO. I would probably add a few more layers so it wasn't as sheer, but I love it!
