Title: No-Sew Toddler TuTus by a Non-Girly Girl!
Post by: BoatsAndSews on November 06, 2011 03:21:28 PM
In preparation for my first craft show (Which ended up going pretty slow  :-\) I made four tutus. Here is a pic of three of them. I raised my little brother, have three nephews, and grew up with boys across the street...so fluffy things and pink-ness just isn't something quite in my forte. HOWEVER, after making these, if I was to ever have a girl, she would most definitely be dressed in a tutu, at least for a photo session! Thoughts are appreciated, since I'm out of my element here.

 


(I think this one should obviously have a brown or fall colored ribbon. I was working with what I had, though!)


(This is the one I sold! It was my favorite.)

Also, please ignore the more...industrial setting...of my last two photos. I made them at work, where the busy time is seasonal, so that is the best place I found for a photo!). Also, I used this tutorial for inspiration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7aSPMEn7S0

I think the white ribbon can match quite well if worn with white accessories, it gives a good contrast.
I'm so not a tutu fan, but I think they're great for toddlers.

haha, I am not either! I just like them for photos. I just wish I had a girl around somewhere to photograph in these! I keep telling my husband that I so adamantly want boys that God's gonna give us twin girls to spite me! And Thank you, I was thinking a white shirt with a turkey or leaf motif or something would work out just fine. :)
