I made this (pic below) European style tutu for my friend Mandy. We did a dance competition together and she needed a tutu for her part. The typical European style tutu's cost around $400 so I decided to try to make hers. It was only $35 when the tulle went on sale at Hobby Lobby.
Arabella had to have one after she saw Mandy's. This is Arabella practicing her dance before we competed on stage. Not to brag but we did win platinum and got a 5 out of 5 on costumes. : )
I think it makes it more fun if it isn't perfect, even lengths all the way around. Or that is what I tell myself so I don't stress over it being perfect. : )
