I think these little labels add a nice touch to the finished tutu. It’s just a coincidence they match the purple tutu.
My erstwhile assistant Sassafras actually turned up for work today. She, however, thinks that tutu skirts are giant cat sized nests. For this reason they go straight from the tacking dummy to a hanger. Sassy is most annoyed.
The ballet net I use is quite stiff and in a 10 layer tutu doesn’t really require hooping but I always put in a hoop casing in case the tutu needs a lift later down the track
After sewing on the top 2 layers of the skirt I attached the plate “petals” onto the basque. Another 8 layers to go and then tacking!
My next Off The Rack tutu will be a traditional classical tutu in purple silk and blue satin. I spent the morning gathering the net which is now ready for steaming.
This is my current batch of ready to wear tutus all nicely hung up on their hangers
