My sister-in-law's daughter is being Gabriella from "High School Musical". I think it's the third movie because she's going as Gabriella from the prom. The dress she bought for her was a little flat, she told me. So I was commissioned to figure out a solution (I love a challenge). Easy-made tutu, here I come!
I saw this LINK from Crystal's Craft Spot and couldn't wait to try it. I could not believe how easy it was!
Oh! And the dollar store, I was thrilled to find out, sold 8-yard spools of tulle! I went through about eight of them. With a few stitches from he sewing machine I had my base.
I soon had visitors when making the tutu; the cats would not leave me alone!
Here's the finished product, including those curious little ones.
As the tutorial says, I need to flatten it out. It's in the bathroom right now, awaiting a long shower.
I'll post pictures of my niece after Saturday. I totally want to make one for me, but I don't think it'll go with my current costume idea.
