A DIY Tutu for Baby

I absolutely adore the idea of a tutu for Baby Girl so I found a no-sew tutorial and went to town :)  I wound up using tulle cut from a bolt rather than the individual tulle rolls because the bolts had better color selection.  I added some plum flowers and purple ribbon too.

I kind of wish I had a baby doll for a model.  I thought about using our son but my husband was very firmly against putting him girl's clothing :P  Teddy bear it is!



I am now 24 weeks pregnant, have gained 19 lbs and 8 inches to the tummy.  I CANNOT wait until we put Baby Girl in this and take bunches and bunches of pictures!!  Next, I'd like to sew her a little sailor-style dress :)

  2. LOL @ wanting to put your son in a tutu. That would have been perfect blackmail material when he grows older ;) This tutu is way too cute! I can't wait until your baby girl arrives to see her in this either!

  14. 20 York Street - Aww, thank you! It was a relatively easy project - just a lot of knots :)

    Francesca - Thank you so much! I can't wait to dress her up!!

    Aki - Oh I'd love to see an adult version! Please post photos if you make one :)

    LePetiteLemon - Thank you! It's one of my favorites too - I love purples! 15 more weeks to go! :D

    Gigi - Haha - husbands must be very protective of their little boys :)

    Lisa - Thank you! I actually stitched the petals down using clear thread. Ordinarily, I would anchor them with pearls but I was afraid that Baby Girl would pull off a pearl and accidentally eat it.

    Annie - Thanks so much! You and your hubby would have such beautiful, well-dressed children!

    Lor - Oh I'm so excited! I've already purchased quite a few dresses and ruffly onesies for her. Hubby thinks I'm nuts. And LOL about dressing your dog up in girl dog clothes - that just sounds adorable :D
