Step 1
For this particular tutu, we will be using the slip knot technique. Take one of your pre-cut strips and fold it in half. Ensure that the ends remain even.
Step 2
Form a loop at the top of the folded side of your tulle strip.
Step 3
Slide the loop behind your elastic waistband. Ensure that the ends of the tulle remain even.
Step 4
Take the two ends and put them through the loop.
Step 5
Pull both ends through the loop.
Step 6
Pull the ends down to tighten your knot. Adjust the knot as needed.
This is how a proper slip knot should look.
Do not pull the knot too tight or it will scrunch the elastic waistband.
Step 7
Continue tying your strips of tulle until you have completely filled your elastic waistband.
Step 8
Slide your knots together to ensure a full and fluffy tutu.
