Designed to help with placement of your decoration and simple shapes on the plate of the Tutu skirt.
The final designs must always be visually acceptable in their placement.
These are FULL size patterns for guides only as each Tutu is different in size and the patterns will need to be adapted to fit your particular size.
Depending on feedback these might be changed to Half size patterns as they are too large for mailing rolled.
They will come folded in A4 sizes but can be flattened and then rolled for storage.
Available in Adult and Child size— as a basic Adult approximate 15″ Tutu skirt (32 1/2″ High Hip plus 2″ ease = 34 1/2″)
and a basic Child 11.5″ Tutu skirt (28″ High Hip plus 2″ ease=30″). See more information in the Shop under Tutu Patterns.
There will be 3 pattern designs initially- plus the Basic Guidelines pattern— Petals, Stars and Scallops, Starfish
The Designs will be available as a set or individually.
I will be starting off with the Basic Guidelines pattern on its own.
Basic Notes are emailed with each Pattern if ordered.
A good knowledge of Tutu making is advised as the notes do not cover basic sewing or how to make a Tutu.
The Guidelines Plate Pattern is available in the Shop under Tutu Patterns-Tutu Plate Patterns–
with the designs to follow shortly.
These are not for re-sale or Commercial use.
Personal use only.
No returns on patterns.

Information regarding EU Import Duties, VAT payable and Customs can be found here– https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/buying-goods-online-coming-non-european-union-country_en
Basically if I sell to a consumer in the EU I do not apply VAT to your invoice– that gets applied at your country’s VAT charges along with Duties and customs at the border and is payable by you.
As this saga continues I just wanted to let everyone know what could possibly affect you as the customer on my website purchasing certain goods.
As it stands anything I import from Europe will have to have import duties, Tax and customs applied from 1st January 2021. This affects Net from Italy.
The rules and regulations are currently being worked on with paperwork having to increase tenfold.
If I take it as the same as imports from the USA or worldwide then certain goods are classified as controlled and certain as standard imports.
Controlled goods need specialist transport and freight costs are just about doubled. Import duties/ customs are then applied.
Until we all know what is happening we cannot even give an estimate of the extra fees which will be needed to be added to the costs of the goods already set out.
This is as you all know a severe threat to small businesses. Even goods I purchase from the UK will be affected as the increased costs are applied to the many other companies who import goods from the EU.
We can only hope it gets sorted soon so we all know where we stand.
Restrictions are already in place from several companies I deal with who until they have some sort of idea of what is involved will not be exporting to the UK.
Nets and fabrics are mainly affected and haberdashery etc to a lesser extent.
