Simple designs can have a really elegant effect. In this tutu I used the same decoration on the plate and the bodice. It’s a favourite of mine and clients ask for it often. Here it is starring in pink, white and silver.
I used 6 of these around the plate and trimmed the pink lycra to the shape of the applique.
Once the appliques were in place I sewed them on place using silver metallic thread. It’s much easier to sew them on before the rhinestones are glued on (AMHIK).
I used pink and crystal AB rhinestones. You can see where I have trimmed the lycra back to match the outline of the applique.
The bodice has lots of lovely rhinestones too, probably more than the plate actually so that there is lots of sparkle close to the dancer’s face.
I absolutely love Dani’s pattern. It has beautiful lines. She has just released some new ones that I can’t wait to get my hands onto. You should start seeing some new designs later in the year.
