Fuchsia and Royal Blue Tutu

I love bright colours in tutus. They are a delight to make but seem to be finished too soon! This tutu was for little Eden. As you can see in the last photo the colours really suited her fair complexion.

I cut motifs from the fuchsia corded lace. After cutting out the motifs I embellish them with rhinestones especially in places where I may have cut through embroidery or cording.

The fuchsia colour of the appliques is continued through to the underskirt of the tutu which you can see peeking through the skirt. Below is a lovely action shot of Eden at The Illawarra Eisteddfod courtesy of DJBarrett Photographer.

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.
