Revive your old tutu and give it a lift!
⬆Before inserting a hoop. ⬇ After inserting a hoop.
If you have an old tutu that isn’t perky anymore, inserting a hoop will go a long way toward reviving the skirt. Thank you to Barbara Ponder for the before and after pictures.
Put a connector on one end of the hoop wire, thread it through the casing, adjust the hoop to get the shape you want, cut the hoop wire and insert the other end into the connector.
