Following the success I had making Rachel’s Frozen Dress, and having seen a similar themed item on my pinterest feed, I decided to make Rachel a cute little Autumn fairy tutu skirt.
The pattern is basically the same, but with a few little tweaks.
Instead of using a crochet boob tube, I just used a crochet headband – as Rachel is very skinny, it stretched plenty to get it around her waist!
I chose the brown ones, but of course they are available in many different colours, depending on what you want to use them for.
Then I bought 1 metre of various different 54″ nets – in orange, yellow, brown and green.
I also bought a really pretty voile material with a lovely leaf pattern on it, to incorporate into the top layer of the skirt.Gold theme embroidered PACIFIC leafs LACE organza net Curtains Draping voile Fabric
The method was the same as the frozen-style dress I made, except this time, I made it into a short skirt.
I laid out each piece of 54″ wide material and cut it in half.
Then I took one of these halves and folded it in half again and then cut it into 3 or 4 inch wide strips.
Then I alternated between colours, as I looped it through the bottom row of holes on the crochet headband. I probably put on in every 3-4 holes.
I then repeated this entire process in the 3rd row of holes on the headband – having to loop it in through the 2nd row and then out the 3rd.
Finally I did one more layer and on this one I interspersed the colures nets with the gold fabric.
And that was it! Super simple, no sew, pretty autumn tutu skirt.
I also still have enough material to make at least 1 if not 2 more skirts too, so the cost was really only about £6!
I paired it with brown legging and a mocha long sleeved top and voila. I think she likes it…
