My favourite lycra supplier is Eclipse Textiles. While I prefer their matt lycra I couldn’t resist their beautiful pale blue shiny lycra. I used the dull side as the right side of the fabric.
I made up the leotard and decorated it before I put the skirt ruffles on. The skirt was white with a layer of pastel blue in the third layer from the top.
We decided on a small plate to show off the lace overlay to the best effect.
The embellishments flank a long deep nude insert. The silver venise lace blends beautifully with the lycra creating a textural effect.
The pale blue is almost luminous. It will be lovely on stage where the dancer will be Cinderella.
