I came across this gorgeous tutu flower girl dress on etsy, and instantly fell in love with it!
And here is the dress I am making. Not done yet, and I am not completely satisfied, so I guess this will just be a first attempt dress. I think the crochet top, should be shorter, but I may be able to just shorten it. And I am not sure if I should use a softer tulle? (what do you think)

@SusieNor: The etsy one definitely looks “softer” and less stiff to me in comparison with the tulle you used.

I think it looks awesome, but I do think it would look better with softer tulle.

Definitely softer tulle. I saw this dress on Etsy too and loved it!! My Future Sister-In-Law who is also my Maid/Matron of Honor is in the process of trying to make one of these types of dresses for my wedding as well

The etsy one also looks like it has an underlay.

I’ll see if I can find the softer tulle! 🙂 Thank you for replying. Any suggestions to where I can buy soft tulle online?(who will ship overseas) I have no idea how to separate them from eachother. But I expect the softer ones to be more expensive? 🙂
@miss-stacie-2013: It does look less transparent. But when I watched a DIY video, the lady didn’t use an underlay. But if the dress with the softer tulle looks as transparent as the one I am currently making, I’ll try to add an underlay 🙂
I think my daughter will have to wear some sort of tights or something underneath anyway, when it comes to children, everything itches! :-p
@mkelove: Thank you! Hopefully I’ll be happy with the end result 😀

I love love love tutus. I make them alllllllll the time haha. I love the way you’re starting out and it looks really good. I think it’d only make it more flower girl than ballerina with the softer tulle tho =] Good luck!

@SusieNor: I think the big difference isn’t only the “softness” but also the fullness, even if there is no underlayer it appears hers is more thick. Have you tried doubling up when you make it?
Here is my source for Tulle and Ribbon, and they ship internationally. This is the “Bridal Illusion” tulle which is soft.

@mmm_jacklyn: Thank you for the pictures! great halloween costume, haha! I am totally using that idea for next halloween!!
@Elky: Actually, the dress pictures has already got 3 layers of tulle.. But I think the “poofyness” makes it more transparent? And the dress on the inspiration picture has got a darker ivory (which I actually really like!) Thank you so much for your link, I’ll definately check it out 🙂
