DIY Fairy Tutu
This was a last minute task. The party I was invited to was a theme party and the theme was Tutus & Hats.
I could not envision myself wearing a tutu with hat. I put a couple of outfits together but the hat and tutu combo was not happening. So I decided just to stick with the tutu part of the theme. But I really didn’t have anything that jumped out… The one item I was really considering was that fabulous brown Chanel dress that I got for $9.99. It has been on my mannequin for months now. But the dress is still in really bad condition with holes and shredding all over. Any suggestions about what I should do to make it wearable?
So, last minute thoughts….. I decided to do a big tutu and mix the tulle with fabric and grosgrain trims. I decided to leave all the edges raw. I wanted something edgy and de/re-constructed so CDG comes to mind. I’m thinking of a sheer front with a covered back so I can wear boy shorts or bloomers with it.
The back of the skirt is made out of thick wool.

DIY tutu: All you need is 3 yards of tulle and one yard of any regular fabric that you want to mix in. I have hook and eye closures and snaps because it’s easier for me that way. And thanks to Nha Khanh for the fabric and for teaching me some new sewing techniques.
