I finally seem to have gotten my mojo back :) or just decided not to clean and just do my thing!!! I finished this tutu dress for my niece who will turn 3 years old next week. Her party is Ben & holly themed (a British cartoon) so i embroidered princesses holly on the front of the dress- since i couldn't do the design on the Crochet stretch material decided to do it as a stand alone, but had some problems... next time round i will do an oval patch for under the design.. i think it will come out better.

Great job, I love the top it looks fab! Our grand-daughters Ophelie and Delphi watched Ben and Holly too.

How many layers of Tulle did you use on the skirt? Love Chris

Sorry for taking long in replying... i only filled every hole in the crochet top once at the bottom and than added the really thin tulle with glitters every other two holes on top of the filled row... having said that the tulle that i used is much more dense that the ones that can be found in the US and/or aliexpress (China), infact i can only find tulle by the meter here which is about 40 inches wide...

I think it came out marvelous! I wanted to do a short tutu for my grand daughter for Christmas, she loves ballerinas. Didn't get it done but her birthday is in July .... You never know, after seeing yours I might get it done yet. Don't know this cartoon but our 3 year old likes Peppa Pig. Great work!

thank you so much :) Honestly the most laborious part of the dress was the embroidery! i believe i managed to cute the tulle and attach it to the crochet top in less than 2 hours... and this includes cutting tulle in strips since i can only find wide tulle on a bolt here in Malta. So go for it!
