Le Corsaire – Pas D’Esclave Variation

I’ve made a few of these costumes over the past few years. As a stretch costume  it’s a snug and secure fit for younger dancers.

The bodice is not too deeply cut and extends comfortably down through the midriff as the dancer is young and good coverage was requested.

basque back

The basque reaches just short of the navel and is decorated both front and back. You can see the earring finding I’ve used.

There’s a layer of glitter tulle in there for a bit of extra sparkle.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
