QTY:

Want to get the perfect fit?   It starts with altering your pattern to match your dancers measurements. You’ll notice that our patterns have the bust, waist, hips and other important markings on them. This is because our goal is “To provide you with the tools to create what inspires you”.

How to alter the bodice width:

  • Start with taking accurate measurements! You can learn more about this in our ARTICLES, from TUTU EDUCATION, or for hands-on training, working on actual bodies and under the guidance of our teachers, at our SEMINARS.
  • With your measurements, you can now alter your pattern.

PDF Diagram for this alteration is included when purchased.

Step one:  Cut out and align your pattern, pin or tape the middle front to the side front (advantage of our PDF patterns, you can print out copies!).

Step two:  Cut vertically down the center of the pattern pieces as shown. Do not cut the center front panel.

Step three:  Adjust by spreading apart (or overlapping) and until the measurements are the same as your dancers.  Remember the pattern is ½ the total.  32” bust = 16” across the pattern. Tape paper behind the “spread” or tape together if overlapping.

Step four:  Reassemble the side and middle front pieces. True up all seams where cut.

Step five:  Check measurements.

To learn how to apply to classical tutu skirts, men’s and more…see us at our seminars.

Our patterns are made and sized for PRE PROFESSIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL body types. Typically a smaller bust (small B cup) than the standard.

MEN’S AND BOY’S SIZING

Choose pattern size by chest measurement. Patterns have approx. 3" ease in the chest, 0" in the waist. Waist and lengths are easily changed. This allows for different body types (i.e. muscular or lean) to choose the right size. Muscular boys and men need to pump up BEFORE measuring as this can add quite a bit to the measurement.

Patterns also change slightly to accommodate the changing body shape, Boys, Young Men, and Men.
