Trick or Tutu

{Tulle Tutu of Sorts}

{Tulle Tutu of Sorts}

In Halloweens of yore, I’ve been a sexified version of whatever I wanted to be.  This year, I’m a regular ballerina.  And to complete my demure ballerina costume, I made a tulle skirt.  Okay, I made a tutu.  Whatever.

To make le tutu:

1. Hand gather 10 yards of tulle (folded in half) using big stitches.

2. Press 4″ ribbon in half; fold ribbon over gathered edge of tulle; pin.

3. Sew ribbon/tulle/ribbon sandwich together.
