Constructing a Tutu

I am making a classical English tutu this semester with costume designer, Jean Lamprell. She is an outstanding instructor, a master of tutu construction and also period costume. I am both thrilled and honored to be able to learn from her.

Sewing first tucked ruffle layer onto knickers...

  1. love your posts on making the tutu. It is gorgeous. I'm not sure what the "knickers" are, though. Can one buy a pattern or book somewhere?
