People often ask "Do I need tutu steel to make a tutu?" the answer is "no". Tutu steel is typically use by professional ballet tutu makers for tutu's used in partner work. The tutu steel helps maintain the shape of the tutu when the ballerina is dancing with a male partner; it keeps the tutu from getting crushed when the ballerina is held against the male dancer. Tutu steel does not have to be used in child tutu's though some ballet schools request it.
Tutu steel is sometimes called "Thread covered hoop steel" and is a form of spring steel that is covered with a braided thread covering. The steel itself can oxidize (rust) and should be kept in a dry environment.
Tutu net is available in regular and "crisp" or stiff. They look alike but the "crisp tutu net" has sizing on it. For children the regular tutu net is a good choice as the edges are less sharp. We sell both qualities to professional ballet companies for pancake or flat tutu's. Romantic tutu's are long and fluffy and our tulle is a popular choice for these. Our tulle is made in Italy and the holes are all very uniform which makes it a better quality than what is made in North America; ballet companies around the world use it.
Tutu's are mounted on a basque or panties and the tutu pantie can be made of our nylon veiling - hard to believe but true! I've seen it done and was amazed because the veiling seemed so delicate but - it's surprisingly strong. The tutu pantie was cut from two layers of nylon veiling; one on the straight grain and one on the cross grain. If you make tutu panties - try it!
