One of the hottest trends is the TuTu …also known as the tulle skirt. This fluffy ballerina style skirt looks amazing with slim tops and at-the-waist belts, but the best part of this trend is that you can make your own tutu skirt, at whatever length you’d like for around $20!  You don’t even have to have a sewing machine.

All you need is about 6 yards of tulle, some wide elastic that matches the tulle fabric color and a needle and thread.
– Cut the tulle into 5 – 48″ layers and stack them.
– Cut the tulle to your desired length, choosing at the knee or below.
– Gather the tulle using a needle and thread. The gathered width, should be able to slide past your hips.
– Once you have it gathered to the fullness you desire, simply sew the tulle to the measured elastic. The elastic must be able to stretch past your hips.

Now add a slim top and a gorgeous belt!  You can do this in less than an hour, so you are NEVER without a new party dress/outfit. You can head to the fabric store and make a huge impact for very little cash.   LOVE IT!
