    Hi just saw my name! Thank you and thank you Dani Legge for mentioning me too...Loved reading how you searched for tutu patterns and what you found..thats exactly what I found out too! I had joined a sewing forum (2008)and discovered how many were searching high and low (with lots of $$$$) for McCalls tutu pattern and realized I actually had bought one back in the 80's...oh my! Had no idea that tutu patterns were so hard to find...I always assumed that everyone made their own like I did..Soooo this is how my tutu pattern business got started! I now make a bunch of patterns (from girls size 6 up to adults) PLUS Dani has really been inspirational with her amazing stretch tutus...so they are out there, and yup can email patterns/instructions.
    Glad to see all you other tutu lovers out there :)
