On a recent trip to Indonesia, my brother brought home some bright new lace for me. While it wasn’t quite what I might use on a tutu it did pique the interest of one of my clients for a new contemporary costume.
The lace itself was a greenish turquoise but it blended beautifully with the royal blue lycra. On the back here I have sewn additional appliques across the top of the gathered lace and onto the waistband.
I decorated the crop top with appliques and rhinestones.
