No sew tutu-torial

My little Beeb is going as a cupcake for our Fall Costume Carnival at church. I made a simple no sew tutu for the costume… and here’s how!

What you’ll need:

  • Tulle in your desired color(s)
  • Elastic for the waist band
  • Tape measure
  •  Scissors
  • Something to hold the waistband

I used two shades for brown for this project. I think the tones add a little interest to the skirt. Anyways, cut your tulle into small strips, one to two inches wide and twice a long as you want your tutu to be. I also made one of my shades a little longer then the other, again for interest.

Measure  the and cut your elastic to fit the waist. Tie it off with a square knot.

Slip the elastic around something to hold it while you tie on the tulle. I used a formula container. 🙂

Take your first strip of tulle and fold it in half.

Insert under the elastic fold down.

Now, tuck your ends over the elastic and into the loop.

Pull tight. And repeat. I alternated my colors and squished ’em pretty close together. Experiment and see what you like to get the look you want.


Until we meet again,
Emily Anna
