Repeat row 3; 13 more times.

The visible shell edge will be the top of the tutu. I wanted it this way to use as a design.
Skip 9 of the shells and add ribbon for the neckline, using the same method in the pictures below.
Sew your 4 buttons onto the back of the tutu starting at the bottom. *Skip 3 rows, next row add a button, repeat * to the top.
For tulle, cut tulle into 22 inches long by 4 inch wide strips. Fold tulle in half and add tulle to the dress following the pictures below!
