Tulle has such an interesting texture. I love the way it feels as I work with it, the way it takes on sort of a life of its own as the tutu becomes more and more full.



I’ve spent quite a bit of time with the tulle again in the past week, filling an order from a dance studio. It’s recital season and somewhere, a group of eight little girls will all be wearing rainbow tutus made by yours truly. (See the “big picture” at my Flickr.)

Oh, how I would love to see that! I don’t really choose favorites among my “babies” but these puffy little rainbow skirts make me smile, even as the clock just tick tick ticks away. I stacked them on my dress form as I finished, which gave me an idea for photographing them before sending them off.

Individually, they are so sweet and lovely but layered upon each other, they take on a new dimension. I look at this picture, and it’s almost as if they are undulating in the current, so much motion without ever moving.

    I love it – it reminds me of the one dance recital I can remember (I didn’t last long in dance – totally uncoordinated) – lots of tulle and tutu! Fun!

    I just love the color and texture here. You bet that when my little girl gets older I’m going to be ordering a tutu or TWO from you! šŸ™‚

    How wonderful!! I remember wearing tu-tu’s for my ballet recitals…they always made me feel so fancy and beautiful! I love the picture of all of them on the dress form…although, they DO remind me of a dress one of The B-52’s might wear.

    Absolutely fantastic!! The colors are incredible and the camera really captured it!

    They look really nice – how did you make them, with an elastic in the waist, or a tie… or? I would love to make some for my girls.

    Gosh, is this an appealing group of tutus! Wouldn’t it be fun to see them animated on little girls?
