I just set this blog up today so I would have somewhere to send people who were interested in looking at pictures of my tutus. Leotard based, stretch, pull on tutus have a reputation, in some circles, for being a cheap and nasty alternative to "proper" traditionally made tutus, but I think when well made, they can look just as good, fit better in lots of cases due to the wonders of stretch fabrics and are a lot cheaper!
I have started learning how to make traditional tutus and must thank Suzanne from "Tutus that Dance" (see website in links) for the pattern for the pink and purple tutu leaping on my header (and thanks Jayde for looking so beautiful in it)! All other pictures on this site so far are of stretch tutus.
Anyone interested in sewing tutus should go to The Sewing Forum (see links) as it has a special dance section full of lovely, helpful, knowledgeable sewers from all over the world
