Blue and Silver tutu

I had a client ask for a blue tutu with some lace they’d seen in another of my tutus. Unfortunately there was only a little of it left. But where there is a will there is a way.

We decided to use silver venise lace to augment the lace on the plate and just venise lace on the bodice. Have a look what we came up with.

I used lots of blue rhinestones on the silver venise lace to subdue the silver as much as possible.

I used the tiny amount of lace that was left and attached some silver venise over the top.

The effect was really quite special. I teamed it with a sweet little crystal tiara.

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.
