I got a leotard for my ballet class today, but the local shop didn't have a mid-length skirt in my size. So I've been looking online for some basic instructions how to sew my own.

I was originally thinking of going for a Juliet-style chiffon skirt, but since I found this "no-sew" method for tulle, I changed my mind.

I'm going to make mine longer, probably to just above the knee. I'm shopping for tulle online now. I see Joanns.com is having a sale on 6" wide tulle ribbon; I might go for that so I don't even have to cut the tulle into strips, I'll just cut the ribbon to length.

The how-to video is here:
