This year my daughter was turning 3, and last summer I had gotten Disney Princess Dresses for a local garage sale group on Facebook. And they just wouldn't hold up and they're expensive and cheap looking (sorry Disney). My daughter LOVES to dress up, and I thought to myself, why can't I make my own princess dresses? And not to be "too full of myself", I thought "I could do it and do it better!"
I hate sewing always have, but now I find it kind of relaxing... I have became my mother (lol).....
So I thought Tu-Tu's and I'll just design my own tops because I couldn't find a pattern I liked. (FYI, I know how to sew, but NEVER designed clothes or done anything like this). So this is how I done a "Tu-tu-rrific Birthday"
*I cut mine into 4 in. wide pieces and 26-28 in. long. and tied them around the waist band. When finished I went and hung the tutu's on one of my kitchen chairs and would cut the ends to make sure they were all an even length. I wanted mine long and full for growing room.
Here is one half finished without trim and to see how well it fit my daughter. (Rapunzel outfit).
I apologize I do not really have a tutorial for the tops because I literally randomly designed these things as I went and I was stressed on time.
Also a friend of mine, Miss Kelsie Ann at http://cutcraftcreate.blogspot.com/ has some awesome sewing projects, and has been participating in blog hops related to other sewing projects, which is why I making sure I get this shared and out there to all those who do love to sew because of a recent event. Check out her site, and she has posts that'll guide you to those other blogs with such amazing projects so you too can get your craft on! : )
