DIY The Carrie Tutu


The Carrie Bradshaw Replica Skirt

In the spirit of Halloween I wanted to update my Carrie Tutu post.  I've made thousands of these over the years for many brides and SATC fans. This happened to be one of the first DIYs I did for Lauren Conrad. 
A SKIRTED DEBATE
''People had reservations about the tutu in the opening sequence,'' Sarah Jessica Parker told EW in 2003. But she and costume designer Patricia Field ''stuck to our guns.'' And so it was that even before her first scene, Carrie Bradshaw and her $5 vintage tulle skirt became an instant fashion classic. Fittingly, the tutu, from Parker's personal collection, makes a cameo in the movie."


Here is the post I did for Lauren Conrad's website.

  11. I love this skirt! I totally plan on making one. I just have a question for you. How is the skirt waist finished. I see the ribbon is there, but is there an opening to fit the skirt over your hips or head? Is there elastic or a zipper or something? What am I missing, or what am I getting lost on. Can't wait to get your help! :)

    1. You can do elastic, zipper, etc...you will need some sort of closure.

  13. Unfortunately, I think this was probably just listed as a DIY tutorial on Pintrest by someone else when they pinned it. Too bad, it's really cute.

  14. Hi Laura,
    It's such a nice skirt, thank you so much for posting the instructions on Lauren's website.
    How can I finish the skirt to have an opening at the back which does not require to attach the tule to the lining? Or do I always need to attach at least 10cm for a zipper and then leave the rest of the tule not attached?
    Hope this makes sense and look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
    Yani
