Blue Roses Stretch Tutu

I made this tutu as a RTW tutu. I had a tiny bit of the blue ribbon rose lace left and I thought I could eke out a design with it. Turquoise velvet was the perfect choice to match the lace.

The lace is quite simple so I blinged it up a little with rhinestones.

I trailed the lace onto the skirt for a soft delicate look. The tendrils were caught by  thread through the top layer of the skirt. I prefer the look of  lightly floating plate rather than mounting it on net.

I submitted the tutu to a FB page selling RTW tutus and it sold within a couple of days. I’ll try to reprise the design a few different ways and add the style to my repertoire.

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.

    1. Hi, the tutu was bought within about 2 days of being listed on a tutus-for-sale page on FB. That’s my goal for a RTW tutu; I try to make them appealing without being too mainstream for a quick sale.

  1. Which site did you list it on Barbara? I thought I was in all the Australian tutus for sale pages on FB but I didn’t see this one come up. It’s gorgeous!
