Learn how to make a no-sew tutu with this super quick and easy step by step tutorial. You read it right there is no sewing involved – Yay!
Start by cutting strips of tulle. Cut the entire 5 yards of tulle into 4 or 5 inch wide strips. It doesn't have to be perfect and the width of the strips can be varied. When you buy tulle it is folded once lengthwise on the bolt. Fold the tulle in half again lengthwise to make the cutting go quicker.
Open each strip up so it is folded in half one time like it was when it came off the bolt. Fold this strip again, finding the middle. You might skip the second fold if making for an adult.
Place the elastic headband on your upper thigh to make tying the strips of tulle onto the band easier. Place the middle of the strip that is folded in half under the elastic band.
Reach under and through the loop grasping the strip.Pull the tail through the loop.
This makes a slip knot, pull snug. Be careful tying tulle strips around the elastic band to not stretch out the band.
Continue tying all of the strips evenly onto the elastic band.
If the waist of the tutu needs to be adjusted, tie a knot in the elastic band.
