How To Make a No Sew Costume Tutu Tulle Skirt Tutorial
Make your own Tulle Tutu
Easy to Make Tutu Pattern with Zero Sewing Skills Required
I am in little princess heaven, with these adorable tutu dresses. You can make this easy tulle dress to fit any costume you wish. Change up the colors, to match. How about a red and black from a cute ladybug? Black and Yellow for a bee? These are too cute and will add the awesome factor into their little costumes.
I am seeing these gorgeous tulle skirts and dresses all over the place, and when I was asked to make a simple ballerina tutu skirt for one of my nieces, I was actually quite apprehensive. I had to buy my daughter several dance tutus for her displays only to be used once. Little did I know just how easy these really were to make, even my daughter joined in and had such fun making these. Not actually believing how easy and quickly they make up, until she made her first one then her second...... Most people know me for crochet, and that I really do not like sewing, so this was an amazing new experience for me, totally enjoyable. and not a needle and thread in sight.
I think this could turn out to be the most popular item I have made this year, They will sell really well at craft fairs
And with Halloween just around the corner, this is a fantastic last minute easy costume idea.
As long as you get a good deal to buy the tulle, dress skirt netting then the cost of these is pretty reasonable.

Where to Buy the Tulle for your Tutus (Best Price I can find online)
Easy Step by Step Ceate your Own Adult or Kids Tutu - Make any size you need in any color you need
Time required: 30 mins
Cost: Cost of Tulle
- multiple strips of tulle (dress skirt netting) each cut into lengths 6 inches wide
- Measuring tape
- Something round to hold your elastic in position for working around (we used a cushion, I have seen people use pots and lampshades, anything round that you can find)
Making your TuTu Step By Step
1. Cut elastic to size for waist (we used 16 inches for an 8-9 year old) Place the elastic around a pillow or large vase or lampshade so its easy to work around,
How to cut Your Lengths of Tulle
2. Cut all your lengths of tulle to even lengths (If you buy the spools this is much easier). It is easier to measure the child or adult you are making the tutu for at this point.
Just now the popular Tutu dresses are floor length. SO for my Niece I actually made several inches longer than her hip to floor length then trimmed when she tried it on.
How to attach Your Tulle to the Elastic
3. Start by taking 1 length of tulle and creating a slipknot to secure your tulle to the Elastic, continue working like this all the way round.
4. I made 1 round of Pink then decided to add in an alternate shorter length of white to make this even fluffier.
Tutu too Cute
Your finished TutTu
5. Keep on working around pulling each length of tulle tight around the Elastic until you have filled up. and have no spaces.
I Like to make some of the strips a slightly different length. This helps to build up the bulk of the Tutu and keeps it puffy.
You now have your complete no Sew Tutu ready for wearing.
