That's how my daughter says dress ups. She's been talking a lot lately about how Santa is going to bring her "pink dress um ups." Although yesterday she was talking about purple ones. I hope she changes her mind back to pink before Christmas, or she might be a little disappointed. Here's what I've done so far:
I'm so excited to give these to my girl. She wears dress up skirts all day, every day. And to bed. "Look mommy, I a pin-cess!" There will be at least one more, made of chiffon. I'm thinking either a circle skirt or a gored one. Something more on the long and flowy side of things that will be good for spinning. I might do a bubble skirt, too. Now that I've started I can't stop- there's just something so addicting about making these super easy skirts.
So, although I have no tutorial, I do have some tips. The top skirt is costume satin- finish your edges before you gather anything!! I didn't for the bottom layer and it was just fraying everywhere. That satin stuff is crazy. I zig-zagged all the rest of my raw edges before messing with them and it was a lot less messy. One tip for the no-sew tutu: if you want it to really stick out, stick some netting in there.
