Tutus first hit the scene at an opera in Paris, France back in 1832. Back then the tutus were a lot longer, you may spot an ankle or two, but that was about all you were going to see. The look was also labeled as the romantic tutus, despite there being zero explanation as to where the word ‘tutu’ actually originated from. Fast-forward to the 19th century tutus were still very much relevant, but the skirts got shorter over that period of time to more of what we see today.
The modern tutus that we see today have evolved to various trends such as the classical tutu which is made of 10 to 12 layers. The pancake tutu, which got its name honestly because it really is flat as a pancake. The other types are the platter tutu, that’s similar to the pancake, and the American tutu which is made up of the short ruffles. Some may even consider that particular one most traditional just because it’s what we’re accustomed to seeing.
Every girl has a little tutu in her, but if implementation is what you’re after, check out how these designers put things together.
