Sorry it took me time cause my scanner was kind of sneaky with me!

You will need:

1 m of white tulle

1 m of pink tulle

1,25 m of pink biais

1,50 m of white ribbon that is a least o.5 mm width less than your biais

1,50 m of pink ribbon 1 cm width

Rubber band (you don't need a big width for this, mine was a 5mm width) that fits your child waist

Matching threads

Let's start it!

First you have to print the patterns for the "leaves"

Printable pattern on my blog : http://chicnjoy.blogspot.com/2010/12/tutorial-for-tutu.html

I used de longest one with the white tulle and the shortest one for the pink tulle

Once you have your patterns cut out,

fold your tulle as much as you can till you have just enough fabric to cut out the leaves pattern out of your tulle.

It' s a very forgiving project so don't be afraid !

So now you have a certain amount of leaves.

Now place your white leaves tulle on the wrong side of your 1 meter biais  (you have to cut out 25 cm for the flower)

Leave 1 cm allowance and start disposing and pin your white leaves side by side on the wrong side bottom of your biais till the end, don't forget to leave 1 cm allowance here too, and sew them.

Time for the pink leaves (the small ones),

Do the same as you did with the white ones and sew them on top of the longs ones.

Waist band:
Sew your 1 cm width pink ribbon on top of the white one (you jave already cut out 50 cm out of your white ribbon for the rubber band), leaving equal amount of white ribbon on each side of the pink ribbon (this purely finishing touch)

Sew your white ribbon and pink on the wrong side of your biais (wrong side of the ribbon on the wrong side of your biais), covering the top of your leaves that are sewn on your biais, sew the top and the bottom and leave both ends open.

Cut your 50 cm of white ribbon in two parts (2 piece of 25 cm each)

Sew your two piece of white ribbon on both ends of your rubber band (you have prealbly cut to fit your child waist).

Then using a safety pin put your rubber band and ribbon inside the waist band.

Use the exces of white and pink ribbon on the waist band to attach the tutu making a nice bow, the ribbon attach to the rubber band is for fitting your child, make a nice bow here to.

Et voil ! You're done

I hope this is clear enought, well that's my first tuto! If you need more or have any questions please don't hesitate.

Soon a little tuto for biais flower.

This is a really cute tutu.  I used to be in ballet - I would have been honored to wear something like this.  I'm so glad you made a tutorial for this.  Great job!  Bravo!   Smiley
