Giselle Romantic Tutu

I’m trying a new pattern for the bodice of this romantic tutu, it’s another lovely pattern from Suzanne Dieckmann. It will be a faux corset top with lacing across the front. Decoration will be a work in progress. Skirt will be white tulle and baby blue dress net.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
