A tutu can be used for a ballet dance recital, a Halloween costume, a gift, or to use as part of a wardrobe. Tutus can be expensive, so making your own can save you money and time. To make a tutu, you'll only need tulle and elastic. You won't even have to use a sewing machine for this process.


1. Types of Tutus

There are five types of tutus: pancake, romantic, bell, platter, and powder-puff. A pancake tutu is extremely short and comes out straight from the hips. A romantic tutu is long flowing and has five or six layers that reach the mid-calf. A bell tutu is short, stiff, and shaped like a bell. A platter tutu is somewhat similar to the pancake tutu, but instead, it has a flat top and is decorated. A powder-puff tutu moves with the dancer, and it does not stick straight out.
