After making a Kira tutu, I came to the realization that I really want to make two different styles of tutus. The first being the "Classic" style. They are shorter and the edges are straight and all the same length. The "Whimsical" style are longer and edges are cut at an angle and the tulle varies in length. Below are side by side comparisons.

I find making tutus therapeutic after a day at work teaching Prep-K and after getting Scarlet and Madrone to bed. I also just LOVE the way they make a child feel and how cute he/she looks wearing one. Yes, boys may want to wear them too. One of my students in my class put on the Wedding tutu and was twirling around the room in delight.
Little did I know how much time and energy went into creating a "shop" even for something as simple as tutus. The business cards, order forms and blog are still a work in progress. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I hope I can make many people happy with a pretty tutu. Remember, tutus are NOT just for children.
