I am a long time lurker and a first time poster. I have diligently read through both tutu threads. All I can say is WOW. I understand that you are trying to defend your daughter, my mom probably would do the same for me. Your daughter should have been flattered by all the attention. YES, her tutus are darling!! Has she never heard the age old saying, "imitation is the highest form of flattery"? We are all crafty women, it is in our nature to want to duplicate something we admire. If your daughter was the business woman she claims to be, then why in the heck didn't she JUMP on the opportunity to create a tutuorial???? She would have made a TON of money. I for one would have purchased it immediately. As you can see, it wasn't difficult for someone to figure out the tutu. Instead of seizing the opportunity to create a tutuorial, or simply to acknowledge that others found her designs inspiring and responding in a positive way, she has alienated people and created a HUGE issue. I just wanted to throw in my two cents on th topic, take it for what it's worth.
By the way, I love this site and how supportive everyone is. Thanks for creating the tutorial, and thanks to everyone that has shared their great ideas!
