Vaguely related question for you: I have always been interested in the process of making a plate tutu, but haven't really found much info about it other than it's really hard and take a lot of time and a lot of material. Your tutus look great - I'm wondering where/how you learned and if you'll share?
It's not something I'd just make, especially since I don't dance anymore and don't have any tutu costumes planned, but it's something I've always wanted to add to my theoretical skill set.
