A friend and I are sure we've seen (online) white fabric sections with hooks & eyes that you can sew into the back of a tutu. Can't find them though - has anyone got any ideas.

 

(We've got a group of girls with romantic tutus that they had made a couple of years ago, but the bodices are a little tight to say the least on a few of them. Just thought this would be an easy way round the problem!)

I think you might need to search for 'bra extenders' - they come in different widths and hooks and eyes in different positions on the length of fabric. I think Calico Lane is an online sewing store that stocks them but I haven't used them myself. I am sure there will be others too. Hope this helps.

All you need to do is get some white fabric, preferably the same as the tutus, sew it to one side of the opening then sew hooks or eyes ( actually bars are better than eyes if you can get them) on to the extension fabric to line up with the existing ones where needed. If you use a large machine stitch the extra insert will be easy to remove later if you need to. This way each tutu can be extended individually giving each girl a perfect fit.
