Of course, just buying something at the store would be super easy, but if what you're looking for is out of stock or just not exactly what you're wanting, you can quickly make this tutu skirt to top off any little girl's costume. I've seen these go with so many different characters like: witches, princesses, pirates, super heros... the possibilities are endless.
Here I made one for my little girl to spruce up her ladybug costume. I couldn't choose to make the skirt all black or all red, so I decided to do both! I also wanted to try something a little different and do it layered. Most tutu's I've seen have different colors mixed in, but this one is unique in the way that the black is on the bottom and is longer and the red is layered on top and is shorter.
Do the same thing with the other color, only shorten it by a few inches so it can be the shorter front layer.
Now that you have your strips, it's time to make them into a tutu! Wrap the elastic around something so you have your hands free; I used the back of a chair. Grab one strip and keep it folded in half. Pull it down, folded side first, and form a loop. Dip the raw ends into the loop and tighten to form a knot.
