Tutu skirt is a great option for creating a magical image of a butterfly, princess or snowflake. The skirt also makes the image sophisticated. A pack can be purchased at a specialty store, or you can sew it yourself.
Make a skirt a pack in several ways.
This method involves the manufacture of skirts without using a sewing machine. In the course of work we will need:
- tulle of several colors (one color can be used);
- thick elastic band up to 10 centimeters wide;
- wide satin ribbon (about the same width as the gum);
- thread in the color of the elastic band.
- First you need to cut the stripes of tulle, the width of each strip should be 15 cm and length 50 cm (the longer the skirt - the longer the strip). For a children's skirt, 40-60 such bands will be needed, for an adult - 70-90, and in some cases 110-120.
- Next, you need to measure the gum and sew the ends overlap.
- After that, you can tighten the gum on the leg or back of a chair and proceed to fixing the strips of tulle.
- The strips of fabric are taken in the middle and tied to the elastic band with ordinary knots. In order that the skirt was not magnificent, the strips are fixed, tying a knot-loop, which will look down. In this case, the nodeshould not over-gum.
- If it is difficult for you to tie the tulle to the gum, lay a line of suitable width on it. At the end of the work you will need to gently pull it out.
- Tied strips should fit snugly together.
- Thus we tie up all the prepared strips. If you notice that the strips are not the same, you can trim them.
- After we tie all the strips, we decorate the skirt belt with a satin ribbon of a suitable color.
- It remains only to straighten the skirt and you can begin to try on.
In order to sew a skirt-pack, the first thing necessary to prepare the necessary materials:
- 3-5 cm wide gum;
- lining (if necessary).
- Eraser serves as a kind of belt, so measure the required length of the gum. It should not be too wide and too narrow.
- Sew the ends of the elastic on a sewing machine with a zigzag stitch (it is advisable to make two stitches in different places).
- Next, prepare the fabric: cut tulle into strips 15-30 centimeters wide.The length of the bands should be equal to the length of your skirt. The number of strips can be from 25 pieces (the more strips - the skirt will be more magnificent).
- We sew the tulle strips to the elastic by turns, making small folds on the fabric. Do not forget to stretch the gum during stitching on a typewriter.
- Sew on the elastic band, starting from the bottom edge of the elastic band. When we finish sewing on the first level, we proceed to sewing on the next over the previous one. One tutu-skirt can consist of 5-7 levels depending on the pomp of your tutu.
- We turn to the manufacture of lining. To do this, take the lining fabric and cut it off by 5 cm less than the length of the skirt.
- Next, sew the edge of the lining (if you have cuts on both sides, we make two seams).
- With an overlock line we process the upper and lower edges of the petticoat.
- We sweep the gum and petticoat, and then sew on a typewriter with one line, while stretching the gum.
- The last stage is the steaming of the product. Iron gently otparivaem skirt.
