HOW TO MAKE A TUTU Manual PART 1 'The Tulle Skirt' is available now and has over 45 pages, including 55+ instructional pictures and a bonus of 15 Free Video tutorials!! A simple easy to follow manual to help you learn this artisan craft quicker! This tutu is NOT a basic beginner tutu. However it is not as intricate or time consuming as used by some Dance Companies in Opera houses around the world. You don’t need to be an expert! I certainly am not! The manual has been designed for costumes for the competition dancer and for fashion. The Tutu has 7 layers of tulle or net skirt on a band that is attached to a bodice. (PART 1 The Tulle Skirt). We explain 3 different methods from very basic to more advanced. In the first and easiest method is we show you how to attach you net skirt to an elastic waist band.In the more advanced method we create authentic tutus for dance and discerning fashionistas as well as continuing a worthy artisan tradition. Net Needed Girls size 8-10 about 31-32 inch Waist For a Pankcake tutu 11 metres Remember the short (12 CM) layers are what make the TUTU stick out at a horizontal line. Round up inches measurement to nearest whole for ease. This Mummy doesnt have a great math brain. Cut in Strips 3 Strips of 12 cm/4.72in. wide ( this is the first layer of net and the base of the tutu) 3 Strips of 15 cm/5.09in. wide 4 Strips of 20 cm/7.87in. wide 4 Strips of 25 cm/9.84in wide 6 Strips of 30cm/11.81in. wide 6 Strips of 32 cm/12.6in. wide 5 Strips of 34 cm/13.38in. wide , (this is the length of the top layer of this tutu) For a pancake tutu 12 years about 34 inch/86.5 cm waist 13 metres of tulle Cut in strips 4 Strips of 12 cm approx 5 inches wide 4 Strips of 15 cm approx 5.5 or 6 inches wide 5 Strips of 20 cm approx 8 inches wide 5 Strips of 25 cm approx 10 inches wide 6 strips of 30 cm approx 12 inches wide 6 Strips of 36 cm approx 14 inches wide 5 Strips of 38 cm approx 15 inches wide Taller girls or bigger sizes for example a ladies small ,make the last layer 40cm . These lengths are just for standardisation , you can amend for different looks but this gives you a good base look. These strips are then sewn together to make 1 long strip of same width net. After gathering, the strips should measure around the same length as the band base . You can always add extra or chop some off. I think its always better to have a little more than you need for safety.
Dance Essential director Melissa has been dancing since she was 7 years old. She was a major award winning student and had a successful career as a professional dancer. She has gone on to become a widely respected and very accomplished teacher of Junior Students. She has a passion for beautiful costuming and the artisan craft of tutu making as well as a burning desire to ensure competition dancers are costumed accordingly . In her role as a dance adjudicator Melissa has been distressed by some of the poor quality and ill fitting tutus that some dancers compete in. She believes dance is an aesthetic art and costuming correctly and in a flattering manner is just as important as the choreography. Melissa was lucky enough to learn this slowly dying artisan craft of competition tutu making from a world reknowed seamstress who has developed over many years and countless tutus a faster and structured method for creating bespoke tutus. Melissa has applied this to her own wardrobe and makes one off Tulle skirts for herself , her daughters and her friends to satisfy her fashion addiction and also pay homage to her dancing past.
