After a brilliant holiday in Indonesia and Malaysia I’m almost home to start on 2014 tutus. I’ve spent a lovely peaceful day by the pool at my brother’s house in Perth uploading photos and checking emails then I’m off home tomorrow. Here are some photos of the lovely fabrics I picked up in beautiful Surabaya. I can’t wait to work with clients to come up with some artisan tutus.
I can see this black, red and gold lace in a Spanish tutu
Baby blue beaded french lace
Lovely chantilly lace adds a lightness to a tutu or can be used as a base for more embellishment
These panels will look fabulous around a skirt plate
This coral and red french lace was quite a find.
I love this light embroidered net with tiny little sequins. I bought a few colours because it will be very adaptable.
Lovely, delicate copper lace with tiny sequins
I’m hoping this will work for my lime and lemon tutu after the original fabric was sold out
More panelled lace but this time in a lighter gold.
Another Spanish tutu I think with some unusual colours
Pretty beaded french lace
This is a \n exquisite plum coloured french lace with iridescent black beading.
What’s the collective name for chantilly lace … a swathe?
Elegant silver white embroidered lace
Lovely light lace which will be very versatile.
