Tiny Sugar Plum

This tutu is baby pink for a very young little dancer. How could I resist making a pink tutu for a tiny girl? We started with a beautiful embroidered lace with opalescent sequins which I embellished with rhinestones.

The skirt was chiefly white but I put a layer of pink under the top layer of white glitter tulle to soften it a little.

The bodice of the tutu was a lovely light pink. The motif was quite bright so it didn’t get lost with the pink on pink decoration.

This was a perfect design for a tiny sugar plum fairy.

And here is the sweet little thing herself with her arm frills added, her hair in a ballet bun and ready to try on the tutu with her tights and ballet shoes.

    I’m glad to see your last creations. They are, as usual, beautiful and so cute on little ballerinas !
