    Emmagem Exclusive: Tutu DIY

    Tutu underneath the flare dress from Abiferrin

    Remember the House Bunny Movie Tickets Contest? We asked readers to send in a picture of themselves wearing something pink. A reader, Tammy, who calls herself Miu because of the brand MiuMiu and the love of cats sent in a very interesting picture of her boyfriend wearing a Tutu.

    Tutu’s are awesome. They can be worn just for fun or can be worn underneath skirts to make them look puffy. Just make sure your tutu is puffy enough and can stand the skirt’s weight 😀 You’ll look all flirty and playful with a tutu underneath your dresses. Tres cute!

    Miu made a tutu all by herself with the help of some online tutorials. She has agreed to share with us the how to’s and so we went on to ask her a few questions about why she made the Tutu, her fashion picks and get to know Miu in person :)

    Why do you call yourself Miu?

    During school days, my girlfriends would use designer/branded names as our “calling name”. So I chose Miu (MiuMiu) which sounded like Mew (cat) I love cats!

    Why did you make a Tutu?

    It started because my bf had to wear a tutu for our friend’s wedding (u know the games/stunts bride’s girlfriends would make the guys do so that they’ll let the groom in to see the bride). We went looking in Klang Valley for a tutu but could not find any that’s affordable or comes in sizes that my bf could wear. It dawn on me I could make my own, as my mom used to make costumes too when I was a kid. So I figure I could make one myself.

    How did you make the Tutu?

    I made my tutu by tying strips of netting on a long ribbon (which is used to tie around the waist like a belt).  It’s a bit difficult to explain in words so I have a simple diagram showing how I tie it.
