yes on the tule
and a question for you on the tutu
What exactly did you do to make the tutu??
I would like to make something like that for a fairy costume, how did you do that?
well i kinda based it on how a real tutu is made (the lower layers are really short and it get progressively longer so they're held up)
I dont have a sewing machine so i promise this has the least amount of sewing possible!
also i suck at describing so let me know if you dont know what im babbling on about
so you grab your tulle (i used 'nylon netting' i think its, stiffer a bit corser and much cheaper (like 1/3rd the price) than proper tulle) its about 180cm wide and i got about 4.5m in the end and about 2-3 meters of ribbon
Now cos for some wacky reason i usually work in inches when i sew so hopefully i'll now stick to inches
Rightio, cut it into 8 = each piece is now 22 inches (22inches x 1.8m wide),and cut of the selvege edge (? i think thats what its called!) so that the back and front blend together (like its kinda thicker/denser along the edges)
take two pieces lay em on top of one another, measure up 17inches and mark
take another two pieces and lay em on top of one another, measure up 13 inches and mark
Put the two 13inch marked ones on top of the two 17 inche marked ones
Line the marks up and fold over and pin
you should hopefully have four different 2ply layers
about one inch down from the fold, sew straight across, this forms a channel for the ribbon
Then repeat with the rest of the fabric
feed the ribbon thru the channel of both sections, then hold it round your waist and pull till the tulle gathers up and its tight enough around your waist
Ok heres a little diagram:
