pretty like a princess

I made my tutu for the race on Saturday morning. I'm a huge fan of how it came out and I wore it all over the house to make sure it's comfy. It's actually a bit big on me, and I'll have to take some of the tulle off before the race, but right now it is just too pretty to mess with.

Step 1 - tie ribbon to two chairs and pull them far apart.
Step 2 - slip knot the green tulle onto the ribbon leaving space between each piece.
Step 3 add color in between the dark green pieces.
I like how this shows how sparkly the light green tulle is.
The top  of the tutu. I found that thicker strips of tulle worked much better.
The finished product. I love it more than you can imagine.
