For this pinsday I got really crafty. I have had some adventures in sewing before but nothing recently besides the pillow I did for another pinsday post! (and that was a struggle). I decided that for this pinsday I was going to make myself a pretty tutu skirt. I always struggle with skirts because I'm a little old school and don't really like anything shorter than knee length. That's just personal preference though, no slut shaming here! But since knee length isn't super "in" right now I decided I should just try making a skirt myself. Here was my original inspiration.
The Pinterest Way
When I actually went to follow the instructions though I thought they were kind of hard to follow so I decided to go to youtube instead.
This tutorial is really great! I like that it uses an elastic waistband and that the size is really customized with clear instructions. And here is a good video tutorial for how to sew an elastic waistband.
I love this skirt!! It is so pretty and fluffy. The only thing I would've done differently is put two layers of liners on because it is very pale which makes it kind of shear. This wasn't a super difficult sewing project but since it involves sewing I would say it's more difficult than most DIYs.
More pictures of the skirt to come! I actually made this with a certain event in mind so once that event happens I'll have lots of pictures to post. :)
How would you style a tulle skirt?
