Christmas tutu skirt

I had a blast making this skirt for our daughters first Christmas. I followed this tutorial much like I did last time when I made her a skirt out of the adorable polka dot material that her daddy picked out. Instead of sewing the tulle onto a lining though, I cut over four yards of tulle into strips that were maybe 3 inches by 12 inches and tied them slip knot style onto a long strip of ribbon. I then hand sewed that ribbon onto the seam where the waistband meets the skirt. I thought the result was fantastic. She had a fun, super poufy, tutu style Christmas skirt to wear to Church.


  1. I am totally trying this one for Anna!! Love it!!

  2. What a cute little Christmas skirt. It's Christmassy, but can still be worn at other times. You've done a great job! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck turning your formal dress into something more casual.

  3. i wish i could wear it! but it's one of these clothes only babies enjoy!
