Default Adult tutu request.

I got a request to make an adult tutu and she referred me to this picture for what she wanted.

Do you think this is just made like a typical tutu? It doesn't look like tulle is used to me.

How would you go about making this? I want to do my best to fill her request and thought some extra opinions from you all would help! Thanks!!

Not sure what the material is called but I dont think that is tulle either. I would bet it is made the same way if you sew them.

I would ask her if she is wanting tulle and warn her that it may not look exactly like that tutu if you do use tulle.

That looks more like a pettiskirt to me, and not a tutu at all...but I could be wrong. The material appears to at least be similar to the nylon chiffon used in pettiskirts (I think). HTH!

It is nylon chiffon, it is a tutu not a petti. You can get one exactly like that from Bloom Dance-wear or really any dance-wear store( I managed one for about 6 years). It is fairly simple to make a simplicity used to have a pattern for one.

It must just be a popular request-it is a coworker of a family member of mine who asked, but she knows I have a site on etsy right now.

I thought it might be chiffon, and I actually told her its a different material and she wants me to make it with tulle. So, that's the route I'm going

Based off the picture how long would you say that is? I asked her to tell me how long she wanted it and no specifics.

If she wants it to stick out like that I would measure to just below the knee. Cut tulle for that length. The way you make it stand up is to sew the layers opposite. I know that prob does not make sense but once your playing with the fabric you will understand. I swore I would never make a "real" tutu again after I helped one of the local studios make 12 for Nutcracker.

Do you think it could be bustled taffeta? It looks sort of iridescent/shiny. Not sure but I don't think it's tulle. Not that you couldn't recreate it with tulle
