Default Tutu preference?

Hi all! I don't post much but have been lurking here for a while and have learned so much already! I was wondering what your preference is for tutu's, sewn or no sewn. I'm sure the non sewn is easier but which do you think looks better, hold up better, etc...? I assumed that sewing would be better for selling but to be honest I kinda like the look of the knots a little better. Also which is your preference of tulle? I've made some with the really cheap stuff and I just don't like how wrinkly and scrunchy it looks. Then again that could just be me doing it wrong...

Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Smile Re: Tutu preference?

my daughter is one and she has 3 tutus but doesnt wear them that much. but i have heard that the non sewn tutus can be easily pulled apart by the girls wearing them. but like i said my daughter is only 1. so dont have that problem. i honestly like the knot tutus but i dont like big knots. my preference.
the first tutu i bought was almost $50 dollars and i compare that to the others i have purchased and i must say the tulle is way better than the cheap ones. its so much softer and doesnt wrinkle.
hoped i've helped!

I would like to know the same. I want to make one just for my daughter, not to sell, so would love to hear how you all make yours & what your preferences are on making them!!

No sews can be pulled apart or come apart. If you tie them so they won't, then the elastic gets stretched out and the tutu is too big. Sewing is a little more difficult and time consuming.

Hi Ladies,

I have only made 1 so far (DD is 6 months) and Reilly was a baby ballerina (at 5 weeks old) for Halloween. There is a huge difference in the tulle available out in the market. after Halloween I stuffed hers in a ziplock bag until we went to the photographer at 3 months old. I pulled it out and it was as soft and unwrinkled as when I made it. And it wasnt hard to sew either, in fact it was my first sewing project ever.

What kind of tulle was it? I see many different names out there but they all claim to be the best. Where did you get it? Thanks!

Well, since it was my first tutu, I just got the 54" from Hancock Fabrics and cut it down, but that isn't very practical. I have to go in a couple of days and I will look on the stuff I used to find out the content. Then you should be able to look for something with a similar fibre content.

As a tutu maker myself, I prefer the unsewn look. I could upgrade to sewn tutus but as others stated it is a lil more time consuming and why fix something that isn't broke!
I have a special technique I use to where they can't be untied. I get all my tulle from nashvillewraps.com.
I take pride in having the softest tulle. Its a definate must for the newborn/infant tutus.
The tied tutus come out way more poofy than others in my opinion!
