Attitude Tutus and Stagewear has been making tutus and other dancewear professionally since 2012 for dancers across Australia and internationally. My tutus have appeared in all major dance competitions across the world and in most of Australia’s local eisteddfods.
I trained under Danielle Legge and Suzanne Dieckmann and owe them both a debt of gratitude for their wisdom, knowledge and experience.
I have recently moved from Sydney’s leafy North Shore to a new studio in south west regional Victoria on the beautiful volcanic plains. In anticipation of this move my focus on commissioned work has gradually shifted towards more and more original Ready-To-Wear (RTW) costumes. With the completion of my new studio my work will now chiefly be RTW.
All sales will be managed through my Facebook page.
While I focus chiefly on RTW tutus, a small number of commissions will be offered each year for concepts and designs that extend my current portfolio. If you would like to be considered for a commissioned place on my schedule please send me an email outlining your ideas.

Dark tutus make dramatic statements. Dancers need to be strong to carry off these colours as competition stages often have black curtains and the tutu can disappear, putting technique into the spotlight.

Gorgeous deep dark blue with a dark blue skirt
Beautiful black with silver venise lace, pink rhinestones and a pretty pink underskirt.
This beautiful green velvet ready-to-wear tutu was a surprise success. I added the bright gold second tier of trim as a bit of an afterthought but it lifted the whole design. I have repeated the idea a few times as I just love it.
I built this ready-to-wear black tutu around this gold and black lace

another pretty little ready-to-wear, tone on tone
Using the same trim on another tone on tone tutu but for a senior dancer who could carry a more heavily decorated tutu
I don’t make a lot of costumes that aren’t tutus but I do love making lyrical, contemporary and slow tap costumes. I think I just love the soft application of delicate trim and those long drifting skirts.

Same lace but a different design and a soft shell pink colour

Ballet tutus are not all the iconic classical shape. One of the loveliest styles is the romantic skirt, in either soft tulle or a low profile silk chiffon, often topped with a bodice resembling a corset with a light chemise underneath.
