Glacier Blue and Silver

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.

    I like your glacier blue and silver tutu. My daughter is competing at the end of January in Los Angeles, California. She is 12, but very petite (wears child size 8). How much will it cost me a costume like this one?Thanks.
