Tutu? No.. no… not a kutu ya… it’s a TuTu.
I entered a contest organised by TutuWorkshop some months ago. But, didn’t win any prize for Izzah….sedih mak! So, I know how it feel not winning a contest ya…ha..ha..ha.
So, what is a tutu? Just look at the pictures. Oh yeah… it’s strictly for girly girls only!
Well, it’s kind of a light ballet skirt. There are two general kinds, the “romantic” tutu, a long, bell-like skirt extending to mid-calf or below, and the “classical” tutu, a very short, fluffy skirt that stands out almost horizontally from the dancer’s body.
Both kinds are made of many layers of light material, typically nylon or tulle (netting fabric).
Tutus are not just for ballet anymore. Just give a little girl a tutu and watch her twirl, dance, pretend, imagine, sing, jump, fly and of course, smile!
Since I didn’t win the tutu contest, I thought of buying a tutu for Izzah instead. I’m sure it she will looks so pretty in it. Especially because she can walk already…ha..ha
But, the ready-made tutu is so very expensive (RM80 above for double puffy and pretty embellishment). So, I never think about about the tutu thingy until one day I saw some colorful tulle materials (netting fabric) at Nagoya.
I bought 2 meters of tulle (pink and white) because I’m going to make a tutu for Izzah myself. The tulle is RM14.80 per meter.
It’s so easy to do and most importantly, it’s lots cheaper than buying. Just RM30+ for a pretty tutu like this!
p/s I’ll write a tutorial on how to make a pretty tutu like this. It’s so easy, really!
