How To Make A Tutu For Your Dog
Every girl needs a tutu. Even dogs need a tutu from time to time. We’ll show you how to make a dog tutu!
Start with tulle – lots of it. I used one yard each of four different pink colors of tulle. Using different colors makes it visually more interesting.
Cut the tulle into strips about 3″ wide.
Here are all of the colors I used to make my tutu.
I used a piece of elastic – because my waist needs some stretch. Take the strips of tulle and slip knot them onto the elastic until it as full as you’d like.
If your dog has a waist, you can use just a ribbon and slip knot the tulle onto a length of ribbon that fits around their waist, plus enough ribbon to tie a bow with the ribbon.
My waist is over 30″ and my widest point, so my tutu needed a ‘top’ to keep it in place. Spandex knit was perfect for this top. It doesn’t ravel, so no need to finish the edges. And, it stretches nicely over my broad shoulders.

Sew or glue velcro on the neck and waist bands so it is easy to take on and off, but secure while it is on the body. Then, sew the elastic strip tutu to the bottom edge of the body. And, we have a dog tutu!
Then pose for the cameras! Everyone loves a bulldog in a tutu!
