DIY Peacock tutu costume

My sister wanted her daughter to be a peacock for Halloween and asked me if I could make her tutu for her. I agreed and she bought the tulle to get started.

What you`ll need:
8 yards Navy blue
8 yards Purple
4 yards Dark green
4 yards Light green
4 yards Neon green
Small peacock feathers (24 pack)
I already had in hand a 5` thick elastic band (measure your waist for width)
Glue gun/ glue

Yes that is a lot of tulle but once its cut and sewn on to the elastic band its not as full as I wish it had been. Tulle is thin so for great fullness you will need a whole lot more, it just depends on how full you want your tutu to be. My sister wanted it to go below her knee as she will be taking it to school and those are just school rules.

I started with the elastic band, measured her waist, cut and sew closed.
Next, I measured in length from her waist down to her knees for the front part of the tutu. This will be the longest part of the front, you will then cut several smaller sizes for the layered look.
For the back I measured from her waist to her heels and this will be the longest part of the back. Also cut several smaller sizes for layers.
It was easier for me to layer all the tulle for the front and the back first and then cut it that way I didn`t take too long cutting each color separately.
I measured from side to side at her waist and marked it. This will separate the front to the back.
Start sewing! I started with the longest layers of tulle for the back at the first mark at the side mixing the colors as I go and finish at the second mark. Did the same for all the back layers.
For the front I did the same, of course with smaller layers in the green tulle.
The peacock feathers were glued on at the end in random places on the back. They really gave the tutu the final look.
My sister did her make up and it was beautiful. She also braided her hair in a circular form around her head. With a broach she made from smaller peacock feathers.
