Default Re: How to make this style of tutu

Also, you may want to try buying your yardages of tulle off of the bolt instead of the roll.. when i make my tutus with tulle cut from the bolt, they always have a different look than the ones in the roll.. idk what that is, but it always happens.. the first pic is a tutu made from tulle from the bolt and the second one is tulle from the roll.. just so you can see what im talking about..

I like the tutus when they are freshly made and all nice and straight, but they never stay that way for me, so I am learning to adjust and accept that when my dd wears them they lose that freshly made look and are still cute, just 'ruffly' (fighting thinking they are wrinkly!).

Ok, so I have another question about tutus... when they are worn lots do all of yours looks the puffy look? When I make mine they stand straight out, the colours blend together but then after a while they start to just hang and the colours don't blend anymore, you can see the strands.

Is this just me or is this a tutu thing? I know that I can get the wrinkles out with steam but I still never get that freshly made stiff tutu look again.

I just ruffle and scrunch mine by hand.

Here is a tutu I made, same tutu on both girls, just one it pre-scrunched and the other is scrunched

I don't know if it has been mentioned yet, but just from looking at the picture it looks like the seller sort of cut up the bottom of the tulle. It looks like of tattered and torn I guess to give it that rustic look. I could be totally off base but that's just how it looks to me.

Hmm, I don't know, thinking as I type... Meri's do get less full, and I will take each strand and straighten it by hand when it gets too crinkly, it never looks like new again, but they are still cute. I worry about this though, I don't want to sell to someone that wants to use them for pictures and they get all icky and not picture perfect. Maybe someone else can weigh in. I know I have to almost retie mine after a couple wearings as the knots work loose, but that may be cause I don't pull them tight enough, really not sure. I don't sell many (I think 3) mostly I just make them for my daughter, I am taking a few to my booth to add color but not a lot of hope that I will sell them. Around here people don't seem to get that you can wear them everyday. I always get asked what the special occasion is, or why my daughter is dressed up when she wears hers.

Oh my gosh! I know! People think that you have to wear a tutu for a special occasion! At my shows people will stop and look at them and say "These are so cute! But where would would my daughter wear it?"

My response is "GROCERY SHOPPING! Little girls don't need a special occasion to wear a tutu."

I dont make the shirts, those were just shirts they had in their closets, probably from TCP or JCP or Kohls or something like that
