Because each tutu is custom made after purchase it requires time to be created. Current turnaround times are listed in the Shop Announcement below the banner of the Shop Home page: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TiarasTutus
This is a great item for birthday parties and Halloween! It looks great for photo shoots, recitals and pageants, or just for dress up fun. Use it for flower girls in a wedding. Give one as a gift to an expectant mom at a baby shower, as a birthday or Christmas gift, you can even put one in an Easter basket! Tutus can also be used as centerpieces, on cake stands, and around baskets, and they can even be worn by pets!
Technique and Materials:
All of my tutus are created using a technique that allows for maximum stretch and durability!
I use a high quality diamond weave nylon tulle. This fabric meets all current standards for children's clothing.
The fullness of my tutus is created by the large amounts of fabric used on each tutu. I use more than 100 yards of fabric on even the smallest 12" tutu! This causes the tutu to be fuller on the bottom, and can not be seen through! The poofiness and lift of my tutus is created by the fabric filling in from the bottom and pushing the top up higher and higher, creating a round, full tutu. I use a formula that allows me to determine exactly how much fabric is needed on each tutu to create the fullest tutus! I never skimp on the fabric! You will always receive a very full and fluffy tutu, and your tutu will only get fuller and fluffier the more it is loved! ;-)
Most of my tutu styles are made using the same formula. This system creates a flat top and a very full, round tutu underneath. Extra full tutus have more fabric packed on creating a bit more lift at the top, achieving an even rounder look. All 6" tutus are created in the extra full method unless requested to be less full. All other "extra full" tutus will be described as such and priced accordingly.
The technique and products that I use allow for the waistband to stretch about 12" to be easily put on and taken off! Little girls can put them on and take them off, all by themselves! This also makes it easier to fit over jeans and diapers.
My tutus will stretch approximately 6" without distorting the look of the tutu or exposing the waistband, allowing for an average of 3+ years of growing room!
*Stretch allowance will be limited on items that have marabou trim sewn at the waistband.
To ensure a perfect fit, you may choose to provide measurements with your order. Due to the technique I use, measurements are not necessary, although always recommended. If not providing measurements, please include the current standard pant size the child is wearing.
My tutus are made to be worn low on the waist. To make sure that the length you are choosing will work for you, I recommend taking measurements. The best way to measure for the waistband is to measure around the low waist/high hip area, or wherever you intend to position the waistband. To determine the length you need, measure from the same spot at the waist down to where you want it to fall, keeping in mind you may want a little extra length to cover in the back, and when bending over. With the pixie cut tutus the last 3" of fabric doesn't provide adequate coverage, so you may want to add another 3" or so to the measurement you get when deciding on the length of the tutu you would like to order. Feel free to contact me if you need any further instruction.
Larger sizes are available at an additional cost. You can find some teen and adult tutu listings available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TutuTiara?section_id=5880522&ref=shopsection_leftnav_6

Most tutus come standard with both a bow and a flower. Each one is made on an alligator clip. These accessories are made to be removable. I designed my tutus this way to allow for them to be more easily cleaned, stored, and traveled with. This great feature allows you to mix and match your accessories. You can wear the bow alone, or the flower without the bow. You can position the bow in the back and the flower on the front, you can attach either item to a shirt to create the look of a matching set, or even wear the accessories in your hair. This feature also provides the opportunity to buy additional flowers and bows to give it a different look for multiple events!
You may choose not to have these accessories included. For most items, these accessories are included free, choosing not to have these items included will not change the price.
Some specialty tutus come with features such as marabou trim, beads, ribbons, feathers, appliques, etc. These items will be attached securely. They may be hand sewn or attached using a high quality adhesive, and will not be removable.
Layered tutus may need extra care after purchase. If the tulle moves out of place it can easily be re-positioned. Additional instruction is included with your order.
Etsy provides a place to include notes to the seller at checkout. This is the perfect place to include all the details I need to complete your order.
Please include sizing information and/or measurements. Include all details regarding tutu colors, bow color, flower preference, and any other specific requests you may have. You may also provide me with this information through a "conversation" by clicking on the "contact seller" button.
If there are details missing that I need to be able to complete the order, I will request this information in my order confirmation, a message I send at the time the order is processed.
Your tutu will be shipped in a roomy box. It will be carefully packed with the accessories unattached, so your items will arrive in the best condition possible! Instructions will be included to explain just how to care for your tutu, including how to remove any kinks created from shipping, and how to attach your accessories! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. :-)
All items are custom made after they are purchased. A current creation time will always be posted in the shop announcement located on my Shop Home page: http://www.etsy.com/shop/tiarastutus
Sewn vs. Tied/Knotted Methods:
I often get asked what the difference is between a tied or knotted tutu and a sewn one.
Tied tutus have strips of tulle tied around an elastic or ribbon waistband. My tutus have strips of tulle sewn around an elastic waistband!
Some tied tutus are not made to be very full. The way they are tied causes the tulle to stick out, creating the look of fullness, but in actuality, it is very thin and essentially a "belt" of tulle.
Another benefit of sewn tutus over tied tutus is the amount of stretch allowed! Because of the lack of fabric on some tied tutus, they will quickly begin to show the elastic through the fabric at the waist, when stretched out. They will also begin to have the strips move out of place. The technique and amount of fabric I use on my sewn tutus allows them to be stretched up to 12" without showing the elastic band! And the fabric will always return to it's proper place, ensuring you will get many years of use out of your tutu!
Not all sewn tutus are created using the same technique. Many sewn tutus have the fabric sewn directly to the elastic, severely limiting the amount of stretch. This also limits the amount of fabric able to be attached to the waistband, making them less full.
I created my technique with my own very active and rough little girl in mind! Put to the test time and time again by my own daughter, over the years it has proven to be a trustworthy design!
