Sewn Tulle Skirt Technique

What makes a PrincessDoodleBeans sewn tulle skirt tutu so special?

With over 100 yards of tulle on even the smallest infant skirt, you can be assured that these Tutus are the Poofiest available! The mathematical equation I use ensure that you’ll get the maximum amount of tulle possible on your skirt without destroying the waistband.

This leads to the fullness you see in the photos.

There is literally a wall off tulle that makes the tutu not see through. You’ll never EVER find a skimpy tutu here… it is my personal quest to make the fullest tutus around!

– About the Technique –

All of our tutus are created using a technique that allows for maximum stretch and durability. The tulle skirts are machine sewn onto a durable but comfortable elastic waistband, using 1 inch-width elastic to allow between 6-8 inches of stretch in each tutu.

– 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 (nor poofy!) in the end. The way they are tied creates the look of fullness, but in actuality they are quite thin.

Not so with my tutus! After 13 years in the tutu creation business, I have mastered the art of sewing to create the highest quality and the poofiest of the poofy tutus on the planet!

– About the Stretch –

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!

As previously stated, the method and products that I use allow for the waistband to stretch about 6-8 inches to be easily pulled on and off. The elasticity remains in tact, even after repeated use. Our tutus will stretch without distorting the look of the tutu or exposing the waistband, allowing for an average of three or more years of growing room! 

Perfect for them ever growing kiddos. The fabric returns to it’s proper place, ensuring you will get many years of use out of your tutu!

– About the Fabric –

We use a bridal quality diamond weave nylon tulle in each tutu, wands, wreaths, poms, and flora clips. This fabric is soft and durable, not scratchy and bulky like the confusingly often used hex netting that you’ll see in other shops. 

– About the Poofyness –

The fullness of my tutus is created by the huge amounts of fabric used on each tutu, using more than 100 yards of fabric on even the smallest infant tutu! The end result is a much richer fullness on the bottom, which can not be seen through.

My unique mathematical formula allows me to determine exactly how much fabric is needed on each tutu, to create consistency, durability, and noticeable quality for the creation of the poofiest and professional tutus around!

I will never skimp on the frill!

Nearly all of my tutu styles are made using this same formula. There are however a few styles that I call my “Half-Poof” tutus. They use half (you guessed it!) the tulle as the rest of my tutus and are stated as such and priced accordingly. This style still produces magnificent quality tutus for those of us looking to perhaps draw a little less attention (stylish introverts unite!) than others.
