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.
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.
