The making and construction of my Classical Ballet Tutus

Individually Tailored bodice

Twelve layers of pleated tutu net

Three part construction: bodice, basque & skirt 

The hooped skirt has twelve tiers, shaped to follow the body line & hand strung together.



A separate skirt plate is added.

Decoration is added by hand.

May be minimal or elaborate, according to your choice.

A tutu skirt contains between 10-26 square meters of tutu net, depending on size, requiring between 56-86 mtrs of pleating to form the skirt layers.


Finally, the tutu is carefully hand sewn together.

This is an example of an 8pc bodice for a young dancer.
