I found a tutu tutorial (I just love saying that) online, here: http://www.heartbreakkids.com/blog/2010/10/3/how-to-make-a-tutu.html (it's for kids, but was easy to transfer to my adult size). I made mine with black and white tulle, I was hoping to add some red but did not find any at my local craft store... but that's ok, cause I have an idea you will see in a minute.
I couldn't get a decent pic of myself wearing it, but here you can get the idea of the fabulous poofyness as it hides my toes when photographed from above:
And a slightly more forward facing shot:
And modeled by my lovely chair:
I love how poofy it is!
But since this is for a Red Riding Hood costume I think it needs some red, so I found some shiny Christmas ribbon to add, but I can't decide how to add it.
I could tie strips on to look something like this:
Or I could add a simple bow:
I think I'm leaning towards the bow idea, but I might wait until I have the rest of my costume put together ;)
I received these fun wrist cuffs in a swap the other day that will be joining my costume:
Now all I need is a dress (or something), a cape, and a basket of goodies!
I'm also very tempted to buy more tulle in different colors to make myself an other tutu, do you think it would be a crime against fashion for an adult to wear a poofy tutu in her day to day life? They are just too awesome, why should toddlers have all the fun?
