When I decided to make a couple more tutus, I stumble across this ETSY shop that makes custom tutu tops! She also sells Extra Large LINED tutu tops! The tops are more expensive than from the site I usually buy my tutu tops from: source found in this post. However I could not resist I bought an Extra Large LINED tutu top! &That’s the reason for this post!
- Extra Large LINED tutu top from KissyFaceKreations
- Tulle of your color choice (I always buy my tulle from bownut)
- crochet hook if desired
1. The first step is shown here No-Sew TuTu tutorial
Cut all tulle to desired length
2. Start adding tulle to the bottom row of holes on the tutu top. You can add them by using a simple slip knot. Directions found here.
If you can see above. With the lined tutu top you have to put the tulle in at an angle. (side to side instead of up and down shown here)
By using a crochet hook. (which I found much easier than the slip not with this lined top)
Inset the hook where you want the tulle to go.
Then complete a single crochet. tulle over and pull threw. (used a 6.5mm hook) I would assume the larger the hook the easier it’ll be just becareful not to stretch the holes out to much.
Continue all the way about, staying in your color pattern.
These tutu tops are very big! Pictured below is my 3 year old wearing it. It is not stretched at all! So I would assume that these tops have the potential of fitting up to at least a 10 year old. The good this also is they come lined so no worries of being able to see threw the top when it’s stretched. I am unsure if KissyfaceKreations takes custom orders on the lined tops (to order smalled ones) I have noticed in her shop being able to order custom colors in her not lined tops in all different sizes. I recommend everyone check out her shop!
I will have more of this tutu this weekend. We are heading to the beach today for the week and I am planning on doing a photo shoot with this tutu ON the beach!
