Help!... I need help

Post by Claire » Tue Aug 06, 2013 9:42 am

Ages ago I promised Missy she could design her gown to wear to the ball. It seemed like a good idea (as I said, I reallly need (psychological) help)
Well the design is pretty out there... she has a high proportion of Irish gypsy blood I swear.
Said ball is coming up pretty quick now. Doh
So I need quite a lot of rainbow coloured tulle.. or rather tulle in rolls in all the colours of the rainbow. Where can I get it from? It will have to be NZ cause I don't think there's time to get it from etsy or ribbon retreat or anywhere like that.
Help!

oh that's by far the cheapest I've found. Cheers :D

tutu makers.. how many rolls would I need for a rainbow tutu approx. It's the underskirt so needs to be pretty full and reach from tummy to the ground of a five year old :lol:

this kind of thing:

When I was making the shorter ones for my girls I'd use 3-4 rolls (mixed colours so not full full rolls), so for longer and fuller maybe double (or more) rolls

awesome. That's really helpful. Maybe I'll go 9-10 rolls to be on the safe side. I'm sure it will always come in handy if I don't use all of it

Claire, tell her NOW that she will be sewing her own high school ball gowns, OK?

haha.. yeah - what was I thinking? :twitch:
To be fair she actually wants to make it with me rather than me make it. She LOVES when we have a big project to do together. I think it will be the part of her childhood that she will always remember so I don't mind it :vibes:
