My new tutu!

This is my new tutu for the part of belle, it is the second full tutu I have made. I usually wimp out of doing the top and just made the skirt and wear it with a leotard. I haven't seen much for a few years so this was quite an achievement for me, also because I made my own pattern which is something I often struggle with. I hope you like it.

Well done! I haven't sewn anything without a pattern in years, you did a good job on the bodice it fits really well.

You know what other character this would work for? Alice in Wonderland!

Thanks! I think it was more luck than anything else that made it fit, ha ha I'm not the most technical sewer.

The whole time I was making it I kept thinking it looked too much like Alice, and when I sent my mother a picture she said oh is that for Alice. It would definitely work for her although Disney's Alice has a blue collar and sleeves with a full apron, she does have short sleeves though and belle should have long I just hate wearing long sleeves.

Oh I'm such a Disney nerd

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! on a job very well done. Looks very nice.

One of my biggest life regrets is that I never learned to sew or do anything with fiber arts while growing up. I can sew just enough to do simple repairs or do ribbons/elastics on shoes and that is about it. You have a good talent for it and I am envious.

Must say Ballet_Baibe that tutu looks wonderful and suites you lovely! Despite being a male I was given one to wear like that when doing a drama production three years ago! I wasn't the keenest but the ladies certainly had a giggle at me! :O
