  • Measure the waist, as well as from the waist down to the point where you’d like your tutu to fall. My daughter’s waist is 19 inches (you need this measurement for the ribbon), and I want the tutu to roughly fall 12 inches from her waist (you’ll need this measurement for the tulle).

  • Cut your strips of tulle. If you buy tulle on spools it’s much easier because it’s already cut to a width of about six inches, which is perfect for tutu making. (If you can’t find it on spools you can also buy it by the yard. You’ll just have to cut it all into six-inch wide strips before cu

  • I like my tutus to be super fluffy and full, so I usually use about 75 yards of the tulle on spools. You need to cut strips that are twice the length you measured previously. I measured 12 inches down, so my strips will be 24 inches long. Cut the tulle into strips of your needed length and set aside

  • Step 3: Cut your ribbon. Add 48 inches to your waist measurement and cut the ribbon this length. This will ensure nice, long ends to tie a pretty bow with.I heat seal the ribbon ends with a lighter so they don’t fray, but if you don’t mind a little fraying you can skip this step.

  • I then found the middle point of my ribbon and folded it, measured out 9 1/2 inches and tied a knot on each side right at the 9 1/2 inches mark.Now I have 2 knots 19 inches apart in the middle of my ribbon. Between these 2 knots is where you’ll knot on your tulle.

  • Start knotting on your tulle! I tie my ribbon around my leg so it’s easier to knot the tulle. Since I make super fluffy tutus, I use three strips of tulle for each knot. Gather your three strips together, fold in half and slip the folded part underneath the ribbon

  • Grab the two long sides of the tulle and bring them up through the fold, pull tight, and slide all the way over the the left knot in your ribbon.

  • Continue knotting on and sliding the tulle all the way over until you reach the other knot in your ribbon.

  • You’re done! You can trim up the bottom if you’d like, but I like the not-so-perfect look of it when it’s finished so I don’t do any trimming.
