A tutu is made of a sheer fabric also known as tulle that is generally stiff, yet gentle to the skin. Tulle does come in a variety of qualities. When you think of a tutu you tend to associate it with ballet, and the tutu’s worn by ballerinas is usually of stiff tulle. However, there are some tutus described as “baby-soft”, which refers to softer tulle that is delicate and not stiff. The fabric is translucent and therefore the tutu has several layers, but we would advice that you have your child wear shorts, leggings or a leotard under it. Normally a tutu with only two layers of tulle will certainly require that your girl wear something appropriate under it. This also applies to tutus that have a slightly lighter color such whites and pastel shades. Nowadays tutus come wonderfully decorated with small and large flowers and petals that add detail to the dress. They are also accented with satin ribbons that are beautifully tied into bows.
Pettiskirts are usually of softer fabric and are not stiff. They are made with numerous layers of various materials.
Generally you will find that pettiskirts have triple layers of fabrics. The upper layer will be composed of lace, satin and another light-weight fabric. The middle layer can be of soft tulle. And the bottom layer, or inner layer, is typically of satin because it’s soft and hence will make it comfortable to wear. All the layers have ruffled trim tulle to give the pettiskirt a full and fluffy appearance. They don’t really require anything to be worn under them as they are not translucent as a tutu dress. So you can have your daughter give the leotard or leggings a miss with the pettiskirt. But during the colder season, it is perfectly acceptable to wear them and they can be paired with boots, which will look charming on the little youngsters. Pettiskirts do come in a variety of lengths, which can be above the knees or reach the mid-calf, as per your comfort level.
Both the fits of a tutu and a pettiskirt are easy. They have elasticized waists that give them a snug and comfortable fit and this will ensure that they can be worn as your child grows. The only thing to consider would be the length.
