Here are a few things I learned while making Hailey's tutu:
The tutorial says to use about 20 yards of 6" tulle, but how much is that if you buy it off a bolt? I ended up needing about two yards of 50" width fabric to make the tutu for my petite
I used big fat ribbon to tie the tulle around instead of elastic. It works well because it can grow with Hailey. But it was a little harder to tie the tulle around, because I couldn't really put it around an object to hold it for me.
You can feel free to not follow the instructions exactly; it's a forgiving kind of project.
I'll add an update with my own pictures later. (We brought the tutu with us, and I'm sure there will be some great photo opportunities at Grammie's house!) I've got to go now, it's breakfast time, and Hailey and her Daddy are hungry!
