You'll need 3/4" elastic
thread to attach elastic together
tulle, I bought mine at Hobby Lobby in the spool
I used 1/2 spool of pink, purple and green for the one I made (for a 27" waist) , and 1/2 spool of pink and purple for the smaller one ( a 17" waist).
First measure the waist of the girl the tutu is for, cut the elastic 2" smaller than her waist. (the elastic will stretch as it is being made) Sew the ends of the elastic together.
Next cut all the tulle into 21" strips. Both of the tutus I made are for very short people so add some inches if it is for a taller child. If your not using the tulle on the spool cut the tulle into 5 1/2"x 21" strips.
