Tutu-orial for a Swirly Skirt

December 10, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

This tutu is perfect for twirling to the Dance-Along Nutcracker® or sipping mulled hard cider at a holiday shindig.  Elisalex of By Hand: London made this tutu-orial for a swirly skirt; the “top of Elisalex’s party priorities list is to get that vintage ball gown dry cleaned, shine up the heirloom diamonds, stock up on lavender hair dye, and, of course, gather layer upon layer of tulle to make the flouffiest, pouffiest fairy princess tutu there ever was.” She succeeded.  We’d like to see it made up in layers of palest ballet pink and airy dove grey for a smidgen of élégance.
