• Start Bodice Asembly

    Time: 12 minutes

    Center front, middle front , side front panels are now seamed. The seam allowance on the princess seam is discussed and the importance of maintaining the bust curve. The center back and side back are seamed and piping the edges takes place. I’ll also grade the top of the bodice at the peak to keep that top edge smooth for topstitching.

  • Attaching The Bodice To The Skirt

    Time: 14 minutes

    I’ll be positioning the bodice and then whipstitching it to the skirt in the ditch of the basque and net line. If you know what embellishments you want for your bodice and plate, it’s easiest to stitch them on before you attach the bodice to the skirt. Your tutu, if following along is finished!

  • Steaming and tagging Layer 1

    Time: 10 minutes

    This is the way I steam and tack a tutu. The first few layers are hand tied. There are lots of methods to hand tie a skirt. This is what I have found to be the fastest for me. I also use plastic tags using a tagging gun for this skirt. Hooping the skirt is also in this section and we discuss the shaping of the skirt.
