How to make a ribbon and lace tutu

This is a helpful tutorial that shows an intermediate seamstress how to sew a “very” fluffy tutu with lace and ribbon.  Please bear in mind that you do not need to use exactly the same amount of tulle, but, can use an amount that is equal to the amount of lace/ribbon.  If you do not use the exact amount recommended in the video, the outcome of your tutu will not be the same.


  1. Tulle  (Joans, amazon, $>5)
  2. Elastic by the yard (same as above >$2)
  3. Lace (>$2)
  4. Ribbon (>$2)
    1. See how to coupon for your DIY project blog

The tutu below was made using the exact measurements noted in the video for a 1 year old.
