Totally Tutu

The tutu. Every woman who loves glamour, will at some point, fall under the spell of the tutu. Whether it's a skirt, a dress, a halloween costume, or a traditional ballet will want one. Perhaps it's because you feel a little like a princess, a bride or a fairy-even though you don't really want to admit it. I mean a full grown woman might be a little embarrassed to fess up to loving the same thing a 5 year old does. But, really, some things never change.

When I decided to make a tutu skirt to complement a bustier top I was working on I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I thought it would be a quick and simple sewing project. Without fail, whenever I think that, the project ends up taking 5 times longer than I anticipated and I think about throwing it in the garbage multiple times each day. But I persevered! After 10 yards of white tulle, 2 trips to the fabric store, and more than a few choice words to my sewing machine...I present my version of the super fun, super cute tutu. I have also provided some of my inspiration...enjoy.
