To make the tutu, simply trim a length of 1” wide elastic to comfortably fit around the waist of your little cowgirl and sew the two ends together.
Next, take some store bought bandanas, open them up and press them with an iron. I refolded my bandanas with the center of the cloth forming a point. This helps to make them hang nicely from the tutu.
Sew the tips of the bandanas to the elastic waistband at even intervals. I alternated the colors.
Cut lengths of tulle with your shears. Each length should be about 8” wide.
Tie the tulle in knots around the elastic. This technique is much quicker than sewing and helps to create a comfortable, tidy waistband.
Pair the cowgirl skirt with a simple tee and tie a bandana around her neck. Don’t forget the cowboy hat!
