Prizewinner

I offered one of my custom-made tutus as a prize for the senior Classical Section of the South East Queensland Performing Arts Festival (SEQPAF). The winner, Kaitlyn McNall, said she’d like an elegant blue tutu with a light and delicate design. She left the design pretty much in my hands.

Silver venise lace on the bodice

The neckline of the bodice was cut marginally lower than usual but not deep enough for a nude insert to be necessary.

I wanted a striking design but not too heavy. So I played around with loops of trim floating on glitter tulle.

I slowly built up the tiers on the plate until I was happy with it. The plate and the 2 outer layers make up a pretty 3-tiered plate. The slightly darker skirt gives a luminous quality to the tutu.
