Default Need sewn tutu help! What color thread?

I just made a sewn tutu and finally got it to look nice and poofy! The only problem is the white thread looks bad. It is red and pink and the white just looks crappy. What thread do you use with multi colored tutus? Thanks for any advice!

They sell a transparent thread. Its a little more expensive but works well for things like this. Could you please share where you got your tut from? I have been looking for a sewn tutu tutuorial. HTH

Yep, the transparent thread is also called nylon thread (or at least that's the kind I have). The other "rule of thumb" tends to be that if you have a lighter color and a darker color, use the thread that matches the darker color.

You'll have to set your thread tension a bit differently with the nylon thread, but I'm sure you'll play with that!

Hello Ladies,

I have been wondering, how do you make a sewn tutu? I make the knot tutus, but would like to sew them. I bought a tutorial online and it was a scam!!! Help Ladies

This is what I was thinking. The darker would look better.
