A PrincessDoodleBeans first and Fabulously "less poofy"?? I admit it was a stretch to create a tutu as non fluffy as this, but after listening to the masses and creating one as a custom order, I conceded to the fact that THIS TUTU IS FLIPPIN' AMAZING!
Half the tulle of the FABulous Bella Mode tutu (seen here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/57185820/bella-mode-custom-ballet-style-mid ) with the ballet style tulle in your choice of colors and length.
Choose as many tulle colors as your little heart desires from the 34 FABulous colors in the photo. Also, choose the color of satin ribbon that will form the bow sewn onto the skirts waistband.
At time of purchase please include all color/length choices and waist measurement. (up through 32" or a woman's size 12)
Skirt length is measured from waistband (where the skirt will sit) down to where you want the skirt to end, in inches
For larger sizes an additional charge will be added to your total to compensate the added supplies.
35-38" waistband: add $10
39-42" waistband: add $15

PrincessDoodleBeans tulle skirts are high quality, handmade, and custom-designed pieces. They are multi layered for fullness and made with bridal quality tulle. All skirts are professionally machine sewn, keeping them from falling apart and the waistband is 1" wide elastic, which makes it easier to put on and take off! The skirts are constructed of either 6" wide or 3" wide tulle strips for a fun, funky, and unique skirt look!
Custom Half slips
Slips are recommended to be worn underneath for extra coverage as tulle is a sheer fabric no matter how much is on the skirt. Our custom half slips are made of high quality medium weight satin fabric and comes in many coordinating colors to match your skirt. Slips do not come attached to the skirt nor is this an option. Slips are recommend to be at least 2" shorter than the skirt they are accompanying.
This is a half pouf style skirt. A slip, leggings, tights, shorts ect. is recommended to ensure full coverage. a custom color half slip can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/152709830/the-hester-custom-satin-half-slip-tutu?ref=shop_home_active
Keep in mind this is a custom handmade item. Production time is typically between 3-5 weeks. See shop announcement for current turn around times
About the Technique! -
All of my tutus are created using a technique that allows for maximum stretch and durability!
My tutus are machine sewn on an elastic waistband. I use 1 inch width elastic to allow between 6-8“ of stretch in each tutu. The tulle is comprised of either 6" wide strips or 3" wide strips of fabric depending on skirt style.
About the Fabric! -
I use a bridal quality diamond weave nylon tulle in my tutus, wands, wreaths, poms, and Flora clips. This fabric is soft and durable, not scratchy and bulky like hex netting.
About the Pouf! -
The fullness of my tutus is created by the HUGE amounts of fabric used on each tutu! I use more than 100 yards of fabric on even the smallest infant tutu! This causes the tutu to be fuller on the bottom, and can not be seen through. My mathematical formula allows me to determine exactly how much fabric is needed on each tutu to create consistently poofy tutus! I never skimp on the frill!
Most of my tutu styles are made using the same formula. There are however a few styles that I call my “half-poof” tutus. They use half the tulle as the rest of my tutus and are stated as such and priced accordingly.
About the Stretch! -
The method and products that I use allow for the waistband to stretch about 6-8" to be easily pulled on and off!
My tutus will stretch approximately 6" without distorting the look of the tutu or exposing the waistband, allowing for an average of 3 or more years of growing room!
About the Size! -
To ensure your tutu is as perfect as possible, please provide waist and length measurements (in inches) at time of sale. If you don’t know the exact waist measurement of the recipient, please included the current pant size.
About Customization! -
All of my tutus are completely customizable! Meaning that you, my dear customer, get to choose what colors of tulle and ribbon you’d like, what length you’d prefer, and what style of tulle you want to create the perfect tutu for you! Color choices are included with the listings. If you have a custom color request, please message me for details. I am more than happy to work out any details with you!

About Embellishing! -
Rhinestones, flowers, glitter, ribbons, and anything else you can imagine can be added to any tutu at an additional cost. Please message me me if you would like to add embellishments!
About Shipping! -

You will receive a tracking number upon shipping. Priority Mail is a 2-3 day service, so your order will get to you quickly and safely! International Shipping is available!! Please contact me before sale for a price quote. If you have any questions about shipping, please message me.
About the Sewn Method! -
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the sewn and tied method for tutus? Wonder no more!
Tied tutus have strips of tulle tied around an elastic or ribbon waistband. All PrincessDoodleBeans tutus have strips of tulle sewn around an elastic waistband! Many tied tutus are not very full. The way they are tied creates the look of fullness, but in actuality they are quite thin. Not so with my tutus!!
Another benefit of sewn tutus over tied tutus is the stretch allowance! Because of the lack of fabric on most tied tutus, they will quickly begin to show the elastic or ribbon through the fabric at the waist when stretched out. The tulle strips will also move out of place and the tutu eventually turns into a tangled mess. AHH!
The method and amount of fabric I use on my tutus allows them to stretched up to 6-8" without showing the elastic! And the fabric returns to it's proper place, ensuring you will get many years of use out of your tutu!
However, not all sewn tutus are created equal, either. Many sewn tutus have the fabric sewn directly to the elastic, limiting the amount of stretch and amount of fabric used.
*As you can see, a PrincessDoodleBeans tutu is in a class by itself! More full than most tutus on the market (including Tutu Couture for FAO Schwarz!) Very durable for MANY years of wear, and still priced modestly so everyone can enjoy them!! Here’s to being TuTu FABulous*
Care instructions: hand wash, air dry, Wear often!
